In a small Midwestern town, a long-dead woman haunts her son and the woman he loves in this supernatural chiller by the author of The Mirror.

When Lynnette got married four years ago, all she wanted was to flee the confines of her dull hometown deep in the heart of the cornfields of Iowa. After the death of her husband, Lynnette has now returned to her famine-plagued farming town to care for her widowed mother. Looking to escape the boredom of being back home, she visits Jay Van Fleet in the old and eerie Van Fleet house, long rumored to be haunted by the ghost of Nella Van Fleet, Jay’s mother who died during childbirth. Jay, haunted by a horrific near tragedy that shaped his boyhood, has reluctantly returned to his family homestead to claim his inheritance.
 
Both coping with loss, Lynnette and Jay find solace in each other until terrifying and strange events start occurring in the Van Fleet house. The ghost of Jake’s mother, Nella, feeding off the presence of her adored son, grows stronger by the day. She has already killed once for him, and she will kill again to ensure that he belongs to her—and her alone—for all eternity.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade—but escalating—battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face–including his own—he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.

From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
