Thriller Thursday: What they didn't expect from the family Bible

Maddie and Ellie, two characters in my book, find something unexpected when their sisters go searching for their hidden Christmas gifts one day. The family Bible. And it's stashed away in the depths of the crawlspace. They manage to get it up to their room, and they crack it open. Dust flies. Thin, leathery pages sift through to the floor. But then they reach the page where their births are recorded. Maddie had always been told she was born in 1990, and Ellie in 1991. But here, in this tiny, slanted handwriting, are their births recorded as 1820 and 1821.

Find out what happens next!

This record found in my family's Bible is what inspired this scene in my book:
