My darling girl / Jennifer McMahon.
Alison O'Conner has a picture-perfect family life in small-town Vermont with her husband, Mark, and their two daughters, the rebellious teenage Izzy and precocious elementary-schooler Olivia. Everyone is busily putting up holiday decorations around the house when Alison gets the call. Mavis, her estranged mother, has been diagnosed with cancer and has only weeks to live. She wants to spend her remaining days with her daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters. Alison grew up with her mother's alcoholism and violent abuse and has little desire to relive those traumatic memories, but she reluctantly agrees to Mavis's last request, hoping that they both might be able to heal and have the relationship she's always dreamed of. But when mysterious, increasingly terrifying things start to happen upon Mavis's arrival, Alison begins to wonder if something far more sinister is at play. And as her mother's final days spiral into a nightmare, she must decide just how far she is willing to go to protect her family. -- Provided by publisher.
