Home by Dark is full of drama,some normal life and some scary stuff. Enough to keep you in the dark about what was going on till the end of the story. It is also a clean read.
Rachel Weaver Mason and her 9 year daughter are moving back to her hometown of Deer Run. The Amish community she left when she married out of the Amish into the English world. Her mother-in-law left her home to Rachel. Witch surprised her because she did not approve of her son marring a Amish girl and kicked him out to.
Rachel was going to fix up the big house as a bed and breakfast. Hoping to provide for her daughter. Rachel's family still did not welcome her back except her brother Benj.
Benjamin at 14 was a big help to Rachel and got along with Mandy.
Benj was acting really scared and jumpy after a Amish boy ran away from home without a word. Benj was keeping secrets especially from his father.
Colin McDonald was a old friend of Rachel's husband Ronnie. He stopped by to ask if she wanted to list the house with him. He was also concerned about Benj and noticed how scared he was. Benj did yard work for him.
Something was going on and Benj knew more than he was telling. Colin got Benj to tell a little bit about it. Colin feels like he owes something to Rachel for not being their more for her in the past. Colin is also dealing with his father in the first stages of altimers.
Someone else was trying to make things hard for Rachel to start a bed and breakfast up in town.
I like to read Marta's novels. Look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
