Auger signs ‘Willow Brook’

May 02, 2014

Frankfort — Sherry Auger, a resident of Milford, will sign copies of her book “Willow Brook” Thursday, May 15, from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Waldo Peirce Reading Room/Library, 11A Main Road South/Route 1A.

When school let out for the summer of her last year in middle school, 14-year-old Janet Marley had no idea that her life was about to change forever. She was ready to run away. Her mother died when she was 7 and she had raised herself because her father, Judge Jonathan Marley, was still grieving.

As she set out that night, strange things were happening in the sleepy town of Willow Brook, Maine. It was undergoing a transformation: buildings were fading; the landscape was different; and she was feeling a tug towards the woods. Janet is catapulted into the 17th-century and comes face to face with the ghost of one of her ancestors who was hung at age 6, accused of being a witch during the Salem witch trials. Janet learns that if she does not remain in the past, she will not have a future.
