AFTER ELI IS the story of three women who encounter the most formidable of dangers--an enchanting man. Though strangers are rare in the town of Yale, and a recent double murder is still unsolved, itinerant actor Michael O'Rear wins over the people of the remote Appalachian village. Intrigued by a legend of hidden money, Michael uses his actor's talents and his gift of hypnotically lyrical gab to win the empathy, and then the hearts, of the three Pettit women: Rachel, alone since her husband Eli left seven years before; her daughter, Sarah; and even her distrusting older sister, Flora. Each woman takes pleasure in Michael, whose charm and wit draw them inexorably into his play of madness--a drama of psychological horror that threatens the weak and unsuspecting.
TERRY KAY is the author of seven books, including To Dance With the White Dog, After Eli, and To Whom the Angel Spoke: A Story of the Christmas. To Dance With the White Dog was made into an Emmy Award-winning Hallmark Hall of Fame production, the highest rated television movie of 1993 and the last film to co-star husband-and-wife team Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy.
