The Burning Girls
C. J. Tudor

Welcome to Chapel Croft. Five hundred years ago, eight
protestant martyrs were burned at the stake here. Thirty
years ago, two teenage girls disappeared without a trace.
And two months ago, the vicar of the local parish killed
himself.

Reverend Jack Brooks, a single parent with a fourteen
year-old daughter and a heavy conscience, arrives in the
village hoping to make a fresh start and find some peace.
Instead, Jack finds a town mired in secrecy and a strange
welcome package: an old exorcism kit and a note quoting
scripture. "But there is nothing covered up that will not
be revealed and hidden that will not be known."

The more Jack and her daughter Flo get acquainted with
the town and its strange denizens, the deeper they are
drawn into their rifts, mysteries, and suspicions. And
when Flo is troubled by strange sightings in the old
chapel, it becomes apparent that there are ghosts here
that refuse to be laid to rest.
