I read this around age 11 and found it wonderfully scary. As I recall, it's about a young pregnant girl who journeys to meet her mother-in-law after the baby's father is lost in the Viet Nam war. I was enthralled early on by such things as the narrator's description of a bakery display case at a dusty roadside cafe--I can still see the donuts sweating beads of liquified sugar in the heat and the plump flies crawling over grease-spotted waxed paper or bumping clumsily against the inside of the gl [...]
Although somewhat dated, this taut little thriller kept me turning the pages. The writing is tight, which keeps the suspense mounting, and the characters are fleshed out decently enough for the reader to care about whether or not the heroine survives til the end. I reader somewhere that this was a made for television film starring Patty Duke, but isn't easy to find. The plot seems like good fodder for a TV film during that decade.
A movie starring Patty Duke and Richard Thomas was made based on this book.
I saw the old movie starring Patty Duke and Richard Thomas and was thrilled to discover the book it was based upon. A riveting thriller that I highly recommend.
"Die! Die! My darling!"Need I say more?
This one is on my "keeper" shelf.

This is an excellent novel of horror written in the gothic romance tradition.Read in one sitting.Read my full review on my bloggothicromancereviews.
First time a have read a Naomi A Hintze book.Great book for a quick read on a rainy weekend.
Better than I expected judging from the cheesy cover.
Just a silly little gothic suspense novel. Fun if you don't want your brain to have to do any heavy lifting.
I came across this book in a used book store, liked the title and cover and bought it. Found it much better than expected. Really glad I discovered it. I wonder if the writer wrote any other books?
Suspenseful! It was an easy read that was full of action the whole way through.
