Sarah Kernochan's JANE WAS HERE book promo. A mysterious young woman calling herself Jane turns up in a small New England town. She claims a fragmentary memory of growing up in this place, yet she has never been here before in her life. Upon her arrival, strange and alarming things begin happening to some of the town's inhabitants. As Jane's memories reawaken piece by piece, they carry her back in time to a long-buried secret, while the townspeople hurtle forward to a horrific event when past and present fatally collide.
"Sarah Kernochan's second novel, Jane Was Here, has an insane premise -- that the presence of one young woman can literally cause the past and the future to collide in real time and space. How Kernochan, the writer of the film 'What Lies Beneath,' pulls it off, and she does, is nothing short of magic. See Jane break the world wide open."
Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean and Second Nature, a Love Story
"An eerie story that not only kept me guessing but kept me up at night. Sarah Kernochan delivers a quirky tale with the perfect amount of creepiness, intrigue, and small town New England politics. A perfect choice for book clubs."
Brunonia Barry, author of The Lace Reader and Map of True Places
"Sarah Kernochan's profoundly modern story of the vengeful reincarnation of a young 19th century New England woman is sly, terrifying, witty, perverse, seductive and thoroughly satisfying."
Rafael Yglesias, author of A Happy Marriage
"In Jane Was Here Sarah Kernochan demonstrates she knows how to cast a spell in prose that is haunting, elegant and seductive."
Ron Rosenbaum, author of The Shakespeare Wars
"Sarah Kernochan's ghost thriller holds you tight in the grip of one question all the way to the final, chilling answer. Jane Was Here is not a Whodunit but the first Whoisit?"
Joan Juliet Buck, author of Daughter of the Swan
