For the ten generations since the evil first came to Woodcutter's Grim, the Guardians have sworn an oath to protect the town from the childhood horrors that lurk in the black woods. Without them, the town would be defenseless…and the terrors would escape to the world at large. A wickedly horrifying rendering of the classic children’s story “Hansel and Gretel”, in which modern revenge is served up sweet... Less than a year after Randall Parker left his family for elementary school teacher, Amy, the unthinkable happens—his ex-wife and two children are killed in a car accident. Ever since the accident, Amy has had terrible nightmares in which Rand’s son and daughter return to exact revenge on their father and Amy herself (the wicked step-mother) for abandoning them. When Rand convinces her to come away with him for a healing respite to an isolated cabin in the woods, Amy’s guilt-filled nightmares turn into pure horror.

"Are you looking for a creepy, hair-raising tale? This book has it! Even though the story happens around Halloween, it doesn't need to be Halloween if you are in the mood for chills! I would like to suggest that you might want to leave an extra light on when you sit down to read this, just in case... Papa is a twisted reversal of the Hansel and Gretel story I grew up with. This story is off the creepiness meter. I had chills down my spine reading this one. Do not read this story at night, alone, and especially not in a cabin in the mountains! If you love the scary ghost stories you probably used to hear around the campfire when you were a kid growing up, then this is the story for you." ~Fallen Angel Reviews http://www.fallenangelreviews.com/2007/November/StephanieB-ShadowsOfTheHeart.htm 5... More > Tombstones! "Everything I hoped it would be. A clever, spine-chilling story that made me unable to stop reading. The characters are outstanding and unique. The eerie tale of Hansel and Gretel has just gotten more chilling. The characters were unyielding individuals with strict beliefs. Just when I thought I had figured it out, the book turns and it throws all my first conclusions out the window. It kept me on my toes. This is a truly Halloween inspired revamp to an old fairytale." ~Bitten by Books http://bittenbybooks.com/?p=1434 4 Hearts! "Karen Wiesner gives the reader a spooky grown-up tale reminiscent of Hansel and Gretel in Papa with a trip to a village where time stands still in a truly scary excursion. An enjoyable read." ~The Romance Studio http://theromancestudio.com/reviews/reviews/shadowheartanthology.htm "In this is a dark and disturbing tale, guilt only serves to feed the terror. The darkness of the theme is enhanced by many images: from tombs, accidental death, endless grief and a place called Grim. Sin and guilt form a backdrop here, as well as the specter of a pact with the devil. It starts dark enough, but the growing awareness of a true horror waiting just around the corner will make even hardcore horror fans cringe." ~The Long And Short Of It Reviews http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.com/2007/09/review-shadows-in-heart.html 4 Stars! "Papa is a chilling interpretation of Hansel and Gretel." ~RT Book Reviews< Less
