WHERE DARKNESS BLOOMS
Publisher: Wednesday Books // Cover Design: Olga Grlic // Art: Marcela Bolívar
The town of Bishop is known for exactly two things: recurring windstorms and an endless field of sunflowers that stretches farther than the eye can see. And women—many missing women. So when Delilah, Jude, Whitney and Bo’s mothers go missing, no one in Bishop is surprised. The case is shut and the girls are left with a dusty old house and the shattered pieces of their lives. Until the wind kicks up a terrible secret at their mothers’ much delayed memorial.
Delilah just wants to move on. She’s been looking after them all since their mothers went missing with the help of her boyfriend, Bennett. They just have one tiny problem: every time Bennett touches her she feels an unbearable pain searing through her.
Whitney would like for the women in her life to stop disappearing. Or dying. First, she lost her mother. Then, she lost her girlfriend, Eleanor. She finds some relief when she visits an old weathervane from the time the town was founded where she can hear Eleanor’s voice asking her for more. But more what?
Jude, Whitney’s twin sister, would rather stay home and ignore it all, but the wind kicks up her secret, too: her summer fling with Bennett, Delilah’s boyfriend, that feels like more than just a fling.
Bo wants answers, and she wants them now. She’s convinced something happened to their mothers and that the townsfolk know what it was. She’s sure of it. That’s why she pushed them to do a memorial for their mothers.
Bishop has always been a strange town. But what the girls don’t know is that Bishop is also deadly—and when it’s through with them, no one might survive.
What people are saying about Where Darkness Blooms
Andrea Hannah's haunting novel Where Darkness Blooms drips with delicious atmosphere and a slowly creeping dread, but the story's true strength lies in the complicated, passionate knot of four unstoppable girls that live at its heart—each fighting with her own unique voice for love, revenge, and freedom from an ancient, ravenous evil. Fans of Laura Ruby's Bone Gap and Rory Power's Burn Our Bodies Down will love this book, a spiritual cousin that explores with vivid earnestness the mighty force that is women determined to help each other." - Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn and Sawkill Girls
"A fierce modern fairytale exploring the bonds of sisterhood in all its forms, WHERE DARKNESS BLOOMS is harrowing and hopeful." - Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf
"A fierce, riveting tale of mothers, daughters, and generational curses. Mesmerizing and brutal, Andrea Hannah’s Where Darkness Blooms belongs on your shelf right next to Laura Ruby’s Bone Gap and Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power." - Adrienne Tooley, author of Sweet & Bitter Magic
"A wildly haunting story. Beware, the creepy town of Bishop will take root under your skin just like those sunflowers somehow take root in the prairie dust." - Ginny Myers Sain, author of Dark and Shallow Lies
