For Doctor Sara Marks, the suburb, is a new life. She had left Harvard and her doctor fiancé hoping to find peace and happiness in her home-but instead she finds Cindy Delp. Cindy, whose parents are the Village caretakers, is a strange child, diagnosed as autistic-unabl e to communicate with anyone or anything outside herself. Wild, ragged, and speaking in an unintelligible, hellish screech, Cindy roams the new community disturbing the Villagers. Only Sara is drawn to the girl, who gradually replaces the child Sara lost to miscarriage. The dislike of Cindy suddenly turns to fright as it is discovered that Cindy's presence causes disaster and death. Parents fear for children and babies in their cribs. Soon women's bodies are invaded, in terrifying assaults, half pleasure, half pain and they are all helpless. The horrors continue until only Sara believes Cindy is innocent. Finally Cindy seeks out Sara and Sara learns the truth about Cindy Delp, the secret locked in her brain, hidden behind Cindy's beautiful, blank eyes. Will combine shipping on more than one book. .
