In the spellbinding and suspenseful Let Me Die in His Footsteps, Edgar Awardâ€“winner Lori Roy wrests from
a Southern town the secrets of two families touched by an evil that has passed between generations.
On a dark Kentucky night in 1952 exactly halfway between her fifteenth and sixteenth birthdays, Annie
Holleran crosses into forbidden territory. Everyone knows Hollerans donâ€™t go near Baines, not since Joseph
Carl was buried two decades before, but, armed with a silver-handled flashlight, Annie runs through her
familyâ€™s lavender fields toward the well on the Bainesâ€™ place. At the stroke of midnight, she gazes into
the water in search of her future. Not finding what she had hoped for, she turns from the well and when the
body she sees there in the moonlight is discovered come morning, Annie will have much to explain and a past
to account for.
It was 1936, and there were seven Baine boys. That year, Annieâ€™s aunt, Juna Crowley, with her black eyes
and her long blond hair, came of age. Before Juna, Joseph Carl had been the best of all the Baine brothers.
But then he looked into Junaâ€™s eyes and they made him do things that cost innocent people their lives.
Sheriff Irlene Fulkerson saw justice servedâ€”or did she?
As the lavender harvest approaches and she comes of age as Aunt Juna did in her own time, Annieâ€™s dread
mounts. Juna will come home now, to finish what she started. If Annie is to save herself, her family, and
this small Kentucky town, she must prepare for Junaâ€™s return, and the revelation of what really happened
all those years ago
