I tried to post about this yesterday. Not sure what happened to that post, so I’m reposting this.
My book is The Red Tree by Caitlin R. Kiernan. When I finish it, this will be book #2 for the RIP Challenge.
I have visited the old Wight Farm and its “red tree,” there where the house squats ancient and neglected below the bogs that lie at the southern edge of Ramswool Pond. So, I have been. I have seen it for myself, but just once. Having accepted the task of editing The Red Tree for posthumous publication, it seemed, somehow, like a necessary pilgrimage. A sort of duty, required of me if I were to gain any insight at all into Sarah Crowe’s state of mind in those last months of her life. So, I went, and even went alone.”
A great beginning, I think. Very mysterious.
