KEITH LEE MORRIS Travelers Rest
Groundhog Day meets The Time Traveler’s Wife in this ghost story unlike any you’ve read before... When a young family is forced off the highway by a blizzard, they find shelter in the Travelers Rest, a grand hotel in a semi-abandoned mining town. With nowhere else to go, tensions mount between Tonio, his wife Julia, and Tonio’s alcoholic brother, Robbie. But then the hotel begins to exert a mysterious pull: Robbie experiences frightening lapses in time while Tonio becomes caught in a loop as he roams the hotel’s empty corridors. Haunted by ghostly images flickering across the TV screen, ten-yearold Dewey is trying to track down his parents and uncle. But is he any match for the powers of the Travelers Rest? Keith Lee Morris’s previous book, The Dart League King, was a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection. His writing has appeared in publications including Tin House and the Southern Review.
