"It was expecting them."
Conrad and Joanna Harrison, a young couple from Los Angeles,
attempt to save their marriage by leaving the pressures of the city
to start anew in a quiet, rural setting. They buy a Victorian
mansion that once served as a haven for unwed mothers, called a
birthing house. One day when Joanna is away, the previous owner
visits Conrad to bequeath a vital piece of the house's historic
heritage, a photo album that he claims "belongs to the house."

Thus begins a story of possession, sexual obsession, and,
ultimately, murder, as a centuries-old crime is reenacted in the
present, turning Conrad and Joanna's American dream into a
An extraordinary marriage of supernatural thrills and exquisite
psychological suspense, "The Birthing House "marks the debut of a
writer whose first novel is a terrifying tour de force.
