Under the Skin (Paperback)
In this haunting tale from the heart of Appalachia, Vicki Lane draws together past and present, good and evil, folklore and secrets, mesmerizing readers with the mysterious bond of true sisterhood--richer than blood, stronger than the passage of time. Elizabeth Goodweather and her city-girl sister, Gloria, couldn't be more different. Elizabeth lives on a farm in the Great Smoky Mountains. Gloria lives in Florida off an ex-husband's fortune. Gloria is a beauty; Elizabeth isn't. Now, to Elizabeth's intense displeasure, Gloria parks herself at Full Circle Farm, on the run from her latest man, who, she insists, is trying to kill her. Elizabeth thinks this is just another of her sister's fantasies. Besides, Elizabeth has her wedding to plan--if only she can overcome her fear that the man who already shares her life may not be what he appears to be. At this precarious crossroads, the sisters must turn to each other--or face a lifetime of consequences.
