Twigs and Bone


After her estranged parent’s phone line has been disconnected, Moira Lane begrudgingly returns to the home she abandoned eight years ago only to find things far worse than she could have feared. Her father, William, has taken to peeing in coffee mugs and her mother, Bonnie, claims to have had a miraculous birth. Believing the “baby” to be her youngest daughter reincarnated, Bonnie is convinced that Faeries in the woods have blessed the family with a second chance. As a terrible storm moves in, Moira must battle her family’s madness and navigate the years of guilt and grief feeding the storm if she has any hope of getting out alive.
