Staff Reviews

The Violet Hour is a heart-pounding fast-paced debut novel from local author Whitney Miller.  With twists and turns and a sprinkle of lies it's a novel that will have you questioning just about everything you have ever seen or believed.  Follow 17-year-old Harlow Wintergreen as she tries to confront the murderous voice in her head...and unravels the very fabric of the world as she does so.  With a heroine this strong, a plot this refreshingly new and a voice decidedly different from anything else out there, why wouldn't you give this book a try?

--Katherine from Books Inc. Laurel Village


Some call VisionCrest the pinnacle of religious enlightenment.

Others call it a powerful cult.

For seventeen years, Harlow Wintergreen has called it her life.

As the adopted daughter of VisionCrest's patriarch, Harlow is expected to be perfect at all times. The other Ministry teens must see her as a paragon of integrity. The world must see her as a future leader.

Despite the constant scrutiny, Harlow has managed to keep a dark and dangerous secret, even from her best friend and the boy she loves. She hears a voice in her head that seems to have a mind of its own, plaguing her with violent and bloody visions. It commands her to kill. And the urge to obey is getting harder and harder to control . . .

Praise: "The Violet Hour takes readers on a dark, delicious thrill ride . . . a] gripping debut."--Gwenda Bond, author of The Woken Gods
