Amazon Blurb: Behind a legend lies the truth…

As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real . . .

So begins Mae Clair’s very shivery novel about a town still trying desperately to recover from the terrible tragedy that caused Eve Parrish and her mother to abandon their home, friends, and family for nearly fifteen years. Upon Eve’s return, she discovers, among other things, that the legend of Mothman still hangs over the town, and believe me, it adds an unexpected dimension to this tale of buried secrets and soul-crushing guilt.

As a fan of Appalachian folklore, I’ve read about Mothman many times, but have to give kudos to Mae Clair for her skillful rendition of what I originally thought was a pretty silly concept. In her able hands, it most definitely is not silly. In fact, I can’t wait for the next book to find out more. In addition to the continuing story of the Eve’s future plans and growing relationship with her childhood crush, Caden Flynn, the mystery of just who, or what, Mothman actually is, just might get laid to rest. I’m dying to learn exactly what the title of the book only hints at.

If you like your mysteries filled with evil aplenty of the human kind, and a touch of what might be something supernatural . . . or not . . . you should definitely check out A Thousand Yesteryears. And may I add, it’s always a pleasure to read a well constructed, well-edited, and solidly written book like this. I will be following along with this story, and will definitely continue reading more of Mae Clair’s work.
