A blazing fire killed her family and devoured her home. A vengeful demon haunted her. Ghosts of the Revolutionary War needed help that only she could provide. A young woman languished, desperate to survive, and teetered on the edge of sanity.
Mehitable grew up in a freshly tamed town, carved from the primeval forest. Family, friends, and working at the mercantile filled her days and warmed her heart. For Mehitable, life was simple and safe, until tragedy struck. When her family perished in their burning home, she retreated into a world of her own making.
As a young girl, she had seen glimmers, glimpses, and flickers of the spirit world. She closed her eyes. She turned her back. She ignored the apparitions that she never spoke of, desperately hoping they would leave her in peace. She was mistaken.
Grief-stricken, Mehitable withdrew from the human world. Ghosts were everywhere. They became bolder. She could no longer turn her back on the spirit world. Her friends feared for her survival. Nobody understood her. She would have to find her own way.
Fans of TVís Ghost Whisperer and Long Island Medium will especially love She Sees Ghosts. This historical novel features memorable characters and delivers bone-tingling, spine chilling goosebumps. It stands on its own and it is the next installment in the Adirondack Spirit Series by the award-winning author of Wanders Far-An Unlikely Heroís Journey. David Fitz-Gerald delivers a historical novel with a bittersweet ending that you wonít see coming.
Would she save the spiritsí souls, or would they save her? Only time would tell.
Ghost story time! What can I say, I’m in a mood. Well, when aren’t I in a ghostie mood? But this book just PULLED you in! It was so interesting and mesmerizing and I couldn’t look away. Subject matter aside even, since it’s one of my favorite genres. Plus I’m just obsessed with the setting and time period this story takes place in.
I like my ghost stories a little twisted and a little historical. I feel like that gothic aspect added to ghosts really makes them spookier in a sense. And setting aside I loved our main character. She was just one of those characters you’re instantly drawn to and it made the plot that much more substantial.
Honestly, what else do I say? I mean I just can’t gush enough about this one. It’s just so good and there’s really not much else that needs to be said. The characters, setting, and plot just all weave together perfectly and it’s just such a perfect story.
About the Author
David Fitz-Gerald writes fiction that is grounded in history and soars with the spirits. If youíre looking for the atheist activist author by the same name, keep lookingóthis book is definitely not for you! After a chaotic day as a business person, Dave enjoys getting lost in the settings he imagines and spending time with the characters he creates. Writing historical fiction is like making paintings of the past. He loves to weave fact and fiction together, stirring in action, adventure, romance, and a heavy dose of the supernatural with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. He is an Adirondack 46-er, which means that he has hiked all of the highest peaks in New York State, so it should not be surprising when Dave attempts to glorify hikers as swashbuckling superheroes in his writing. She Sees Ghosts-A Story of a Woman Who Rescues Lost Souls is the next installment in the Adirondack Spirit Series.
