The Widows of Braxton County

A Novel

About the Book

Widows of Braxton County by Jess McConkey is a haunting and suspenseful novel about family secrets and how well we really know the people we love.
 
Kate is looking forward to starting a new life with her new husband, Joseph Krause. She leaves the big city and moves with him to the Iowa farm that has been in his family for more than 140 years.
 
Instead of something out of Country Living, Kate finds life on the farm a struggle. She hears gossip from the unfriendly neighbors about the connection between the Krause family and a mysterious death decades before.
 
As the past creeps into Kate’s present, she’s caught in a web of dangerous, unexplainable events.
 
Jess McConkey, who is also published under the pseudonym Shirley Damsgaard, is an award-winning writer of short fiction.

“A riveting ride that will start your blood racing from the first line and keep you guessing until the last.” —Kris Neri, author of Revenge for Old Time's Sake

“Part mystery, part ghost story, Love Lies Bleeding takes readers on a spin-tingling trip into a disturbed mind and the lives of two women who must face their greatest fears--or die trying.” —Casey Daniels, author of A Hard Day's Fright
