Lucy Tew's life is a labyrinth of darkness.
She has no food, no water, and a mother who can't wait to test her axe on Lucy's neck.
Locked in her room for weeks on end, with only her dog Tippy for companionship, Lucy faces hours stacked like corpses as days dwindle to little more than watching corn wither in the fields and animals stir within it.
But they aren't the only ones aware of Lucy's predicament.
Inside the house, the very walls come alive as Lucy flounders with sanity. A stranger appears to lead Lucy through her darkest days, but is he the savior she craves? He revels in the turmoil that shadows him. His old relationship with her mother will soon rekindle. And his name is so obscene, no one dares utter it.
Except for the one that calls him Father.
