A husband and wife are offered the one thing they can’t have: children, by a mysterious man. Though they are well past the baby stage, the husband is willing to do anything to get the wife he loves back from the depression she has sunk into.

Their blood runs cold. Normal communication is almost impossible, but they look on with knowing eyes. Eyes too old to belong to a child. Dead eyes

Many years and many families later, these two children seem to still be haunting the lands and home of the family that once took them in.

The mysterious man is back and he’s not alone.

The story flowed smoothly without a hitch. There were plenty of hauntingly good moments.

An uncomfortably spooky read that I found to be a treat. I will definitely read more of Mr. McFarland’s work.

About Michael James McFarland

Michael James McFarland was born in the eastern Washington Palouse country where Fallow Ground is set. He has since married his high school sweetheart, fathered two exceptional children, and currently lives in central Washington state. By day, he works in a sprawling brick building that was erected in the late 1940s as a tuberculosis hospital. Many of his coworkers claim to have experienced ghosts and disturbances within its rooms and corridors. He has been writing for over twenty-five years, and his short fiction has appeared in a variety of formats. Among these, “The Hypnotist” was selected for an Honorable Mention in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror (15th Annual Collection), ‘The Duel’ & ‘Mira’ were produced by Pseudopod as audio podcasts, and ‘Deadline’ & ‘The Yellow Wind’ have appeared in print anthologies. With the rise of digital publishing, he has self published two well-received novels, Wormwood and Blood on the Tracks and a novella, Duplex.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.
