Waiting on Wednesday: Mormama by Kit Reed
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to. My book this week is : Mormama by Kit Reed
MORMAMA is a riveting supernatural, southern gothic tale from Kit Reed. Readers of Joyce Carol Oates and James M. Cain will enjoy this unnerving tale.
Dell Duval has been living on the street since his accident. He can’t remember who he was or where he came from. All he has is a tattered note in his pocket with an address for the Ellis house, a sprawling, ancient residence in Jacksonville. He takes up residence under the house in the basement unknown to the residents upstairs. He just needs time to figure out why he’s been sent here.
In the house, Lane and her son Theo have returned to the family home—their last resort after Lane’s husband cleans out her bank account and leaves. The old house is ruled by an equally ancient trio of tyrannical aunts, who want to preserve everything. Nothing should leave the house, including Lane.
Something about the house isn’t right. Things happen to the men and boys living there. There are forces at work one of which visits Theo each night—Mormama, one mama too many.
This sounds as creepy as anything! Plus, ‘supernatural, southern gothic tale’ – sign me up for some of that!
