The new preacher is young and naive, but the forces coming against him and his town are as old as time and sly as a serpent.
Just a quiet,peaceable settlement, Boggy Creek. Ordinary people, working, going to church, tending their fields, plowing their gardens. Who could know the forces of sin eating away at the very fiber of this little community. Spirits of lust, greed, adultery, taking over the minds and hearts of the decent men of Boggy Creek. Even the new preacher, Benjamin Crane, is hard put to combat the epidemic of sudden disappearances and strange happenings that seem to mount in volume day after day. Who will be the next victim of the creeping evil threatening to destroy the town?
They talked into the night, forgetting that he was a man running for his life and that she was a woman alone, at his mercy. He slept beside the fire, with a pillow and a blanket she gave him. He had been gone when she awoke, the blanket folded neatly. In the days following that strange night, she went about her business as usual, but with an expectancy that caused her heart to pound as though she had been running. The small house felt terribly empty, the lonliness enveloping her.
