After receiving a frantic letter from her cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. However, the house begins to invade her dreams with visions of blood and doom. As Noemí digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness. Mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, Noemí may soon find it impossible to ever leave this enigmatic house behind. The title is available in regular and large print through the library and as an eBook or audiobook on the Overdrive/Libby platform. Space is limited. Registration is required for all participants.
