by Leah R Cutter

The corn husk doll Lizzie always carries has promised to teach Lizzie about power. Maybe even enough to grant all her wishes.

Lizzie just wants Pa to smile again. And maybe for Ma to get well. As for her brother being less mean, well, even a magic wish might not be strong enough for that.

But the doll refuses to teach Lizzie NOW, though her need is mighty.

While the spider...the spider also promises to teach Lizzie about power. Today. The spider just wants a home for her and her children.

This historic horror story delves into wild magic and strange relationships, as well as the consequences of wishes coming true. Be prepared to shiver, then be haunted by "what ifs".
