"Thomas cuts even deeper and darker. If you weren't already a fan, this should be the book to do it." —Sam Rader, Barnes & Noble
"Violet begins with a quote from a Nick Cave song, which equals great promise in my mind, and does not disappoint. Scott Thomas does a great job of instilling that hint of something sinister lurking behind or underneath or just blended in with what's familiar and ordinary. I know when Inkshares is behind something, it's going to be good, and Violet is good in all the ways you want your great dark and creepy literature to be." —Peter Win, co-owner of the Brookline Booksmith
For many children, the summer of 1988 was filled with sunshine and laughter. But for ten-year-old Kris Barlow, it was her chance to say goodbye to her dying mother.
Three decades later, loss returns—her husband killed in a car accident. And so, Kris goes home to the place where she first knew pain—to that summer house overlooking the crystal waters of Lost Lake. It’s there that Kris and her eight-year-old daughter will make a stand against grief.
But a shadow has fallen over the quiet lake town of Pacington, Kansas. Beneath its surface, an evil has grown—and inside that home where Kris Barlow last saw her mother, an old friend awaits her return.
