Long Black Veil

(2013)
A novel by

 
A girl, a boy, and a family curse... Devon can't wait to put her podunk mountain town behind her once and for all when she graduates high school. But even though she's the class valedictorian, the likelihood of her being able to afford college on her own is slim. As she begins the research on scholarships that might help with tuition, a new distraction arises in the form of the town's golden boy, the cute and popular Brock Cutler who works in the town Records room. Devon knows that mountain and town folk don't mix, but she's drawn to him anyway. But as her friendship with Brock deepens, Devon realizes that there are consequences when mountain folk and town folk mingle: she's humiliated at a party by the most popular girl in school, almost assaulted by the school quarterback, and rumors about her begin to spread throughout the school. The ghost of a woman wrapped in a black veil starts haunting her steps. As the these unpleasant incidents become more frequent, Devon's grandmother warns her to stay away from Brock so she doesn't end up like her mother. As she digs deeper into her family's past, Devon uncovers secrets that may be better left buried. Why is she suddenly seeing strange visions of a woman in a veil mourning over a hundred year old grave? How is this veiled woman related to the tragic events in Devon's mother's life? And why is Devon's grandmother warning her away from Brock? As Devon searches for answers and the specter's appearances become more frequent, everything Devon has ever known in her life begins to change. Can she unravel her family's curse before it claims her too?
