Summary "1843 is 'the last year of the world'--according to Elias Fitcher, a charismatic preacher in upstate New York. There he's established a utopian community on an estate outside the town of Jeckyll's Glen, where the faithful wait, work, and pray for the world to end. Vernelia, Amy, and Catherine Charter are three young townswomen whose father falls under the Reverend's hypnotic sway. In their old house, where ghostly voices whisper from the walls, the girls are ruled by their stepmother, who is ruled by the fiery preacher in turn. Determined to spend Eternity as a married man, Fitcher casts his eye on Vernelia, and before much longer the two are wed. But living on the man's estate, separated from her family, it's not long before Vern learns the extent of her husband's dark side... Inspired by the classic fairy tales "Bluebeard" and "The Fitcher Bird", this dark fantasy is a story of faith gone wrong, and evil countered by one brave, true soul." -- Back cover.
