BLACKBERRY WINTER By Kai Elijah Hamilton
An African American mother finds herself in the abandoned house from her dreams.  This is the house she suspects her child has been held captive after his abduction.  Has she finally solved the mystery that has haunted her for years or is she caught in a sinister web of trickery?  Something just ain’t right.

Jacqueline and Frank invite an old friend over for dinner, hoping she will influence Jacqueline’s daughter’s decision about her first teenage love.   Having a smartphone at the ready during a conversation of old friends turns out to be a dangerous thing, as the daughter starts researching their stories through the internet.  They come to reveal and to learn more about themselves during the setting of the dinner table than they ever imagined.
