About the Book:
In the present day, Molly Wasziak's life has not gone the way she dreamed. Facing depression after several miscarriages, Molly is adapting to her husband's purchase of a peculiar old farm. A search for a family tree pulls Molly deep into a century-old murder case and a web of deception, all made more mysterious by the disturbing shadows and sounds inside the farmhouse.
Perliett fights for her life, and Molly seeks renewed purpose for hers as she uncovers the records of the dead. Will their voices be heard, or will time forever silence their truths?
This novel explores that thin border between the spiritual world and the life we live here. Perliett's mother is a spiritualist during a time when interest in spiritualism was at an all time high. That border is thin and curiosity in that area could be dangerous, a friend of Perliett says. (2620/5814) And so it is.
Christian readers might be put off with the spiritualism. We are not to delve into such practices and the danger of it does become clear in this novel. There is one character in the novel who maintains the Christian viewpoint, offering many warnings to the dangerous practice.
Readers of her novels know that Wright usually comes out in the end with a good explanation for spooky events and this novel is no exception. I enjoyed the novel and was glad to see how almost everything ends up to our understanding. In the end there is a little mystery left because, after all, we do live near that thin border of the spiritual realm.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
