An extraordinary southern saga was begun by Michael McDowell and was finished after his death by Tabitha King.
Candles Burning is a haunting tale of deceit, secrets, and the supernatural. Seven year old Calley Carroll Dakin’s beloved father is tortured and murdered. In the aftermath, Calley and her mother find themselves exiled to Pensacola Beach, where they meet a woman who knows what Calley is and wants to control her. Calley is a force and someone wants to use her powers. But this woman made the mistake of eliminating Calley’s daddy without understanding that this particular little girl’s love for her daddy will not be destroyed by mere death.
