Delightfully, on the book's heart is the Vampire Lestat, as soon as the epitome of evil, now pursuing the transformation set in movement with Memnoch the Devil. He struggles along with his vampirism and yearns for goodness, purity and love, as he saves Patsy's ghost from the darkish realm of the Earthbound, uncovers the secret of the Taltos and unselfishly comes to a decision the destiny of his cherished Rowan Mayfair.

Sample text

Many suitors were attracted to Barbara, and in 1791, at the age of fifteen, she married an army veteran named Nathan Davidson. Marriage at such a young age was common at the time, especially if the husband was well established. Davidson lived in Virginia, so Barbara went to live with him there. We do not know exactly what happened to Nathan, or if the two had a falling out, but by 1794, Barbara had returned to live with her parents in Beaver County. She resumed her work on the farm, and everything seemed to return to normal.

Lawrence County residents commonly credit the idea that Mary Black was a witch due to his legendary storytelling. However, Stein’s Memoirs of a Backcountry School, a rambling Faulkner-esque manuscript owned by the New Castle Library, only confuses the legend. The manuscript mentions (the apparently fictitious) Lisa Sturner, a fearsome witch who owned a mysterious Oriental cat the size of a small bear. It is possible that Harry and/or his audiences conflated the names or that he deliberately avoided using the name Mary Black in writing because she had living relatives.

The sons of John and Martha (Moor) Martin brought their mother to the mausoleum and put her picture in the window but left their father where he lay. John was not buried with either of his wives. He rests with his father and a son by his second marriage at Amity Cemetery in Washington County, Pennsylvania. In the end, the one piece of Martha’s mysterious stare that cannot be reasoned away is the possibility that she really is forever watching for her absent husband.
