There's something different about Jackson.
There always was, but when the savant six year old begins to suffer catatonic trances, both his parents are filled with worry. Helplessly they watch the episodes, which begin with their son going stiff as a board, unresponsive and staring into space. Their frustration grows as they search for answers and doctors are unable to explain the trances. His mother Clarice may have the answer, but she's keeping it to herself, because she she fears Jackson has inherited her ability to see the unseen world and the demons that haunted her childhood. Confronting that possibility will mean admitting her own paranormal past, a past she has hidden even from her husband.
But is Clarice the only one who can explain Jackson's condition? His nanny, Mrs. Nicestrum has been with the Millers since the day he was born. While usually over-protective and suspicious of all strangers, Nicey is oddly unconcerned over the catatonic spells.
When John Miller's construction company expands, the tiny family relocates to a remote piece of land in Ithaca NY. Here Clarice discovers THE GLEN, a slice of sylvan paradise, whose borders call to her spirit and touch every extrasensory nerve she ever imagined. With no idea destiny has drawn them there and completely unaware of the satanic cult plotting to kill her son, Clarice must learn the purpose of THE GLEN in order to save him. But will discovering the reason her son needs THE GLEN prove as perilous as delivering him to it?
Fans of The Omen will appreciate THE GLEN as both a mystery to unravel and a suspense thriller to excite. The story unfolds with biblical clues that foreshadow the pre-apocalyptic saga. A classic tale of good versus evil, THE GLEN is the first in a three part series by Carla Coon.
