The Hollow

The Hollow by Jessica VerdayWhen you were younger, how scary was the Legend of Sleepy Hollow?  Check out this passage (and make sure to use the appropriate ghost-story voice):

“On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless!  But his horror was still more increased, on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of the saddle…”

The story is a classic for a reason!  But what happened to the town after Ichabod vanished?  Jessica Verday’s “The Hollow” takes place in modern day Sleepy Hollow and follows Abbey, grieving and in denial after her best friend Kristen disappears at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetary. 

Get more info at Jessica Verday’s website or read chapter one of “The Hollow” before you check it out.
