An old and dilapidated inn in upstate New York provides the setting for this gothic mystery involving two couples in eighteenth-century Revolutionary America.

Told through the diary entries of an innkeeper named Mrs. Truax, this chilling tale concerns Edwin Urquhart, who arrives with his bride at the Forsaken Inn for their honeymoon. The very next day, the couple leaves—but something has transpired during the night, a mystery that won’t be solved until many years later.
