The Baptism by Mike Broemmel tells the tale of the residents of Worthington, seemingly typical small town folks -- the farming family, the widow and her circle of friends, a young woman with a new baby. Despite the seeming normality, something sinister brews beneath the surface of daily life in the tiny village. The tale has a Twilight Zone feel.
The town folks gather on a stormy night for the baptism of May Proctor's baby son. The reader steps into the shoes of a congregant for an event not soon to be forgotten. The novel is inspired by a play and a short story of the same title, both written by Mike Broemmel.
