IN A DARK SEASON – An Elizabeth Goodweather mystery – Crouched on its ledge above the historic Drovers’ Road, the house at Gudger’s Stand has witnessed many a dark and bitter deed. When a new friend of Elizabeth Goodweather leaps from the upper story of the old building, Elizabeth and Phillip, already tangled in the problems of their own off-and-on relationship, are drawn into a web of long-kept family secrets. Brooding madness, mountain magic, and a tale of bewitchment and betrayal in a by-gone time all come together in the best Goodweather novel yet!
When we asked Vicki to tell us about herself, this is what she had to say: I’m a relative newcomer to the mountains of North Carolina, having only lived here since 1975, but I’ve paid attention to the stories I’ve been told and am proud to say that native born mountain folk tell me I’ve gotten it right. The Appalachians are so rich in history that I’ve been compelled to add a historical subplot to each of my novels. In this, the fourth Elizabeth Goodweather mystery, the subplot is from 1860 and takes place on the Drovers’ Road — which ran very near to my farm. It’s my delight to share with my readers the wealth of lore, history, flora, fauna, and folk that comprise my adopted home.
