While the Devil Lies Waiting will make you fear the tick-tock of a clock…
During the Civil War, The War of Northern Aggression to Southerners, General Elijah Beauregard was heralded, although not within earshot, as a demon. Known for shooting his own men for running from carnage, he had no less respect for his beloved Virginia. She’d prayed for his demise, yet only received absolution in her own and her child’s death in childbirth. No one else, who dared live in his house, ever died in peace…nor left the premises.
Over a century later, and many mysterious deaths and events, he would have his Ginny… again.
