Farthest House

Farthest House, a novel full of mysticism and the healing power of self-forgiveness and love.

When Willow is born and her mother dies moments later, only the narrator of this spellbinding debut novel knows the death isn’t from complications of childbirth. Amelie-Anais, buried on the Nebraska hilltop where the family home resides, tells the story of deceit, survival, and love from beyond the grave.

Following Willow’s life and Willow’s incredible passion to paint despite loneliness, a physical handicap, and being raised by a father plagued with secrets, Amelie-Anais weaves together the lives of four enigmatic generations.


Farthest House is haunting and eerily beautiful.

– Holiday Reinhorn


The book, Farthest House, is a page turner of a novel.

Not since The Lovely Bones have we experienced such a moving tale of love, suspense, and family secrets narrated by a ghost.
