Chapter 1
Emma 1896
This isn’t my story. I’m telling this for the lost souls. I’ve been told that I am safe now,
but my heart still pounds when I hear footsteps coming to the door or even the rustle of the aspen
leaves in the breeze. I’m not sure I’ll ever feel safe again. He’s still out there and as long as he is,
I know that he will be searching for me. I have something that he feels is his and he will kill me
to get it back. I know his rage and have felt his violence. He may call himself a man of God, but
what was done in the name of the Lord is nothing less than cold-blooded killing. It may have
stopped for now, but I hear whispers in the wind and murmurs in the water of the stream, and it
is his voice letting me know he’s still there and watching me. So much evil. So much pain. I
spend my time watching and waiting because in my heart I know it isn’t over.
