Praise for The Day of the Door

"The Day of the Door is psychological horror at its best! Unresolved trauma within a dysfunctional family takes a blood chilling supernatural turn. Keep your Jacob's Ladder handy because this book is electrifying and terrifying."

-N.J. Gallegos, author of The Broken Heart

"The Day of the Door by Laurel Hightower is a sparking crucible of family strife from its brutal opening scene to its shocking end. Three adult children, whose lives have been shattered by the trauma of their brother's death, finally get to confront the person responsible: their mother Stella. But that isn't the whole story, is it? The Day of the Door is a propulsive, often terrifying read that diced my nerve endings. Take a deep breath before you dive in because Hightower always holds you under."

-Chris Panatier, author of The Redemption of Morgan Bright and The Phlebotomist

"An intense shard of trauma, poised to cut you. Hightower is a master at extracting the heart of a haunting and stuffing us into the claustrophobic hollow left behind. I will never get the séance out of my head."

-Hailey Piper, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Queen of Teeth and Cranberry Cove
