The Farmhouse by L.B. Stinson - Book Tour


Book Blurb

The house, for all of its solitude, seemed incredibly noisy

 The Farmhouse, having stood against time and history for nearly 160 years in the Virginia countryside, was forgotten and abandoned until Kyle and Jenny Dowling moved in during the summer of 1972.

 The Dowlings, married just a year, were struggling to repair their broken marriage. It was to be the perfect place, away from it all, to heal their relationship. Jenny would write and Kyle would tend to minor renovations. The rent was cheap.

 The realtor warned them, however, against staying beyond the final days of fall.

Excerpt
Jenny turned and caught herself as her leg fell from the couch. What time was it? The room was dark save for the glow of the floor lamp near the staircase. The fire had long since been extinguished. She widened her eyes to adjust to the darkness and contemplated her next move–curl back up on the couch or make the seemingly long and difficult walk up the stairs to their bedroom. The groaning creak of a door from beyond the living room interrupted her thoughts. She pulled herself up and listened, fearful of hearing the tap and ping or worse yet, the raw cries of a soul in despair.
She turned onto her knees and peered over the side of the couch. She could just make out the doorway entrance to the empty parlor room. A shuffling of steps could be heard. Jenny bit her lip as the steps appeared to be growing closer. She counted each step upon its approach until they paused for a brief moment before her. She swallowed a trickle of blood from her lower lip as the footsteps continued into the library. She stepped from the couch as the door to the library clicked shut. Jenny stood in the center of the living room, scanning the shadowed forms of the few pieces of random furniture they had acquired. Her eyes moving back and forth again from the staircase to the library. She ran her hands through her hair, it was simply a dream. She made her way up the stairs as the grandfather clock announced the hour of three a.m.
