Abandoned by their father and orphaned by their mother's tragic death, sisters Hyacinth and Lily find themselves years later still trapped inside Holloway Manor, the family's crumbling ancestral home, and living under their overbearing grandmother's watchful eye. After a freak accident unleashes a series of bizarre new tragedies upon them, the besieged siblings begin to wonder if all the gruesome rumors the locals whisper about their family are actually true. Suddenly ancient curses and tales of doomed ancestors don't seem all that far-fetched, and maybe Tomahawk Creek really will run red with blood... again. In the vein of V. C. Andrews and Barbara Michaels, this is a classic American Gothic tale of terror.
