A woman's desperate yearning for motherhood leads to an obsession with a potentially haunted doll. Is she going mad? Is the doll truly possessed? Who can she trust to end her nightmares and bring her the happiness she desires?
Dawn Easton, an heiress to a fashion empire, has little interest in her family business. She spends her free time, and substantial wealth, painting and enjoying life. Her younger boyfriend, Jacob Jilani, a former fashion model, struggles to operate at Dawn's level. The couple is surprised when Dawn gets pregnant. At thirty-nine years old, this will be her first child.
Most of the action takes place in New York City in 2019. Dawn lives in a fabulous apartment building - the Spire - set along the High Line. She regularly walks the elevated walkway, traveling to Hudson Yards to get a bite to eat, or following it south to make her way to the West Village.
The novel will be published this summer.

The relationships and dynamics between the characters are realistic and interesting. The author truly knows how to build suspense and draw the reader into the world of the characters. The story is really hard to put down because the action and suspense are continuous, with great conflict and plot twists to keep you engaged. I couldn't help but compare the style of narrative and plot to the great Roald Dahl. If you love a great mystery around the subject of myth and legend then you will certainly enjoy this."
