About the Book
A fascinating tale of a seventeen-year-old high school senior, Rik Gabor, reveals a lock-box, buried and concealed in the floor-boards of his home. His friend Ana dropped by to meet on a pleasant Sunday morning.

The contents in the box consist of a map, the deed to a property, and an old photograph. Included were various pieces of jewelry and a hand-written letter from the proprietor assigned to care for the property, Pastor Thaddeus Cahoon. The letter setting forth, the Parish no longer wanted to care for the property due to unforeseen life forces.

A vision of a beautiful woman while, they were examining the jewelry was wearing the brooch. This sparked Rik and Ana’s interest. Instead of hanging out that afternoon, they took a road trip to Cape Cod.

The cranberry bog was overgrown and buried in conservation land. Not long after their arrival to the property, Rik detected unusual incidents. Initially it was a relaxed, peaceful hike. They followed the map leading to the farmhouse. Ana thought she sensed a vine travel up her leg and it tried to trip her. She struggled not to think about how ridiculous that sounded.

The farm house is where Rik and Ana discover this property is haunted. They were assaulted by unforeseen life forces and were run out of the home. On the way back to the truck, Rik was pulled into a portal and transported back to the history of where the bog occurrences began. It is the Autumn of 1895 during the cranberry harvest.
