When Kate Mayfield was born‚ she was taken to a funeral home. Her father was an undertaker‚ and for thirteen years the family resided in a place synonymous with death.

Mayfield draws the reader into a world of Southern mystique and ghosts to show how living in a house of death can prepare one for life.
