Item description for Shadow On The Creek by Orpha Caton...

In the quiet wooded farming community of Tamrock Creek, Michigan, in the late 1800s, Maybelle Peat grows to womanhood. She enjoys fishing the creek with her friend, Jacob Page. At age fourteen, a startling remark shatters her dreams of marriage. She prepares to become a teacher to avoid the stigma of becoming an old maid. Maybelle is drawn by curiosity to the red brick house on an adjacent farm that is rumored to contain evil spirits. She meets Peter Foltz, the wealthy horse trader who owns the red brick house. She falls in love. When a disaster destroys her dreams, she feels doomed and believes God has deserted her. Unable to face the world, she goes into seclusion with an unforgiving heart. God opens a window for her through a little boy. Her mother's death and her sister's wedding push her back into the world of the living. Does Maybelle become trapped by evil spirits in the red brick house? Will she face a lifetime of loneliness if her husband goes to prison? Tamrock Creek and the Meadow Cemetery carry her secrets. Will she ever find it in her heart to forgive?
