Hope Bonnet did not experience a single moment of human kindness during her upbringing in 19th century Northburry. Being deemed repulsive by her mother at birth set the tone for her treatment by the entire Bonnet household. Abuse and ostracization filled Hope’s every waking breath until a chain of gruesome events and a shadowy savior offered her the opportunity to be freed from her tormented life. Her despair turns to optimism as she takes solace in the guidance and ‘sound advice’ provided by her newfound savior, ‘Father.’ Will Hope do his bidding and reign terror on those deemed the cause of society’s ruination? Is Father a figment of her imagination, or is she possessed by a dark beast that feeds on her unanswered prayers? Sound familiar?
