Read an excerpt from Midnight.

Samantha Clark has always known she was different.

Raised in a loveless household, she can almost forgive herself for turning to an abusive boyfriend to give her the roots and love she desperately needs. When that solution turns violent, Sami goes on the run, seeking the help of a college friend from her hometown of Harlan, KY. He offers her a chance at family, but he has secrets.

Set in rural Kentucky in 1985, Midnight is a snapshot of a region in the throes of economic despair as coal miners are laid off and abject poverty afflicts the area. Sami believes Harlan offers no hope until she meets the enigmatic Michael, a man out of place and time, living deep in the hills among a cult-like group of devotees.

At once a supernatural mystery and a story of hope, Midnight is a novel of perseverance and finding the power to fight back.
