Long Black Veil is the story of Judith Carrigan, whose past is dredged up when the body of her college friend Wailer is discovered 20 years after her disappearance in Philadelphia’s notorious and abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary. Judith is the only witness who can testify to the innocence of her friend Casey, who had married Wailer only days before her death.
The only problem is that on that fateful night at the prison, Judith was a very different person from the woman she is today. In order to defend her old friend and uncover the truth of Wailer’s death, Judith must confront long-held and hard-won secrets that could cause her to lose the idyllic life she’s built for herself and her family.
I was unsure about how I would feel going into this story because I tend to stay away from”Creepy, horrory” type of books 📚 because I tend to be sensitive to those…. IE… I get nightmares really easily…..
I gave this story 4/5 stars. I liked the characters but didn’t really connect to any of them. It was so different from my normal reads I am still deciding just how I feel about it myself but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves these kind of books.
I received this book from Blogging for books. Com in exchange for an honest review.
