(From the publisher):
Looming over Crawford, Virginia, is the legend of the Gypsy Man. Everyone knows he was kidnapped and returned as an infant, growing into an odd adult, only to disappear again during World War I and come back—the story has it—to steal children. Haunted by individual fears and supersitions, the inhabitants of Crawford are joined by a common history. Penny Bone is terrified of the phantom, even as more fearful things happen in real life. Henry Gault, her six-year-old daughter's teacher, scoffs at the tale. And meanwhile, Penny's husband, John, is locked up for an accidental murder.
