An Interview with Author Juliet Rose
by Adam Scull
Six months after the sudden loss of an unplanned pregnancy, Hannah Moore is almost ready to think about living again. That is until one fateful day when a reckless, young motorcyclist changes their lives forever. One terrible, momentary decision ends his life at Hannah’s unwitting hands, sending her down a spiral she can’t find her way out of. Even a brief stint in the mental hospital does not release Hannah from that which insists on haunting her waking moments, and the nightmares telling a hard, painful truth she isn’t ready yet to face. At every turn, Hannah sees the dead motorcyclist, flesh hanging off his decomposing frame, and thinks she hears her deceased baby crying in the night. Through a new friendship with Buzzy, a healthcare worker at the mental hospital, Hannah learns her nightmares carry a sinister message embedded in ancient culture. She realizes she must travel to Mexico to discover the meaning of her visions. Through this journey, Hannah uncovers a thread to her past and a horrible secret that bridges the gap between the deaths of her baby and the motorcyclist.
