Our Final Featured Book and Contest: THE GATES OF EVANGELINE by Hester Young

When New York journalist and recently bereaved mother Charlotte “Charlie” Cates begins to experience vivid dreams about children --- visions of injured children, dead children --- she’s sure that she’s lost her mind. Yet these are not the nightmares of a grieving parent, she soon realizes. They are messages and warnings that will help Charlie and the children she sees, if only she can make sense of them.

After a little boy in a boat appears in Charlie’s dreams asking for her help, Charlie finds herself entangled in a 30-year-old missing-child case that has never ceased to haunt Louisiana’s prestigious Deveau family. Armed with an invitation to Evangeline, the family’s sprawling estate, Charlie heads south, where new friendships and an unlikely romance bring healing. But as she uncovers long-buried secrets of love, money, betrayal and murder, the facts begin to implicate those she most wants to trust --- and her visions reveal an evil closer than she could’ve imagined.

A Southern Gothic mystery debut that combines literary suspense and romance with a mystical twist, THE GATES OF EVANGELINE is a story that readers of Gillian Flynn, Kate Atkinson and Alice Sebold won't be able to put down.
