Behold! One of the two main characters of the yet-to-be-renamed Crookfield!
Charlotte Saint is my secondary main character. She’s eighteen years old and living in Crookfield for one summer only: the summer before she finally enters college. Her father ditched Crookfield many years before her birth and never looked back, but her estranged Crookfield family begged him to let her spend just three months in Crookfield to know her heritage, and so he and Charlotte at last acquiesced. This is the last place she wants to be spending her summer, but she’s finding it to be certainly an… interesting environment.
After all, it’s not every summer you get to live in an ex-cult town.
Unfortunately for Charlotte, it becomes slowly clear that the Crookfielder blood burns more fervently in her than Thistle or perhaps any other citizen. And with the gods that sleep under the melted-tar highway slowly stirring, well…
She’s a beacon to lead chaos right to them.
