Wendy Webb - The Fate of Mercy Alban

Highlands Ranch: Wendy Webb, the author of The Tale of Halcyon Crane—the 2011 winner of the Minnesota Book Award for genre fiction, and an Indie Next Pick from the Independent Booksellers Association—will read from and sign her new novel The Fate of Mercy Alban (Hyperion). Grace Alban has spent more than twenty years avoiding her childhood home, the stately Alban House on the shores of Lake Superior, for reasons she would rather forget. But when her mother’s unexpected death brings Grace and her teenage daughter back, she finds more is haunting the halls and passageways of Alban House than her own personal demons!

"Wendy Webb is a professional journalist, first and foremost. Like those journalistic masters Dickens and Twain before her, she knows that to write good travel prose, you must give a vivid account of both the demons you find along the way and the demons you bring along with you.”—Michael Alec Rose, BookPage
