About the Book
Recently widowed Sylvie Andrus moves with her young son, Jason, to a small river town, and discovers she must solve a two-century old mystery to rid herself of the ghost who haunts her. Still grieving, she finds the ghost of her husband, Ned, waiting in her new home to seduce her. Jason warns Sylvie the ghost is evil but, swept up by her yearning for her husband and determined to reveal what happened to Clarinda Braxton, a Revolutionary Era painter who disappeared without a trace in 1794, she delays, putting her son’s life in peril.
Praise for Possession
“Ginny Fite weaves a fascinating tale of an undiscovered murder, a grieving widow, a mysterious ghost and the history that connects them. A love story and a ghost story, POSSESSION celebrates the courage of women to overcome tragedy and grief.”—K.P. Robbins, The Stonehenge Scrolls
“As we’ve come to expect of keen-eyed author Ginny Fite, Possession is masterful. In a cyclone of peril and malevolence this novel spirals us back to chilling events of the 18th century, then lets the consequences fall on a 21st century mother and son. For a story with compelling characters that is both haunting and heartwarming, Possession delivers the goods. –Lee W. Doty, Tidal Kin
“Ginny Fite strikes again, taking us on a wild ride in Possession—an unusual blend of mystery, feminism, and horror told in dual storylines. I consumed this book in a few sittings, desperate for resolution.” –Leslie M. Rollins, Good-Time Girl
Have I mentioned lately how much I love ghost stories? Because I really do. There’s something about them that just lures me in. And Possession is one of those stories that swiftly lures you in, switching between two different perspectives and times to deliver the whole of the story.
What really makes this story so haunting and enjoyable are the characters. We get to learn so much about them and become invested in what is happening to their lives. Or what happened. And this book is short enough that the sharp focus on the characters is really what drives the story. And for me that’s what I like to see in a ghost story. I just feel like it makes the haunting aspect of the story that much more impactful.
I really enjoyed this new ghost story and getting a glimpse into these characters lives. It’s also a really fast read so you can easily devour it in one sitting. And I also want to just point out how well everything flowed in this book! Which can be difficult with a book set up like this.
