Corrie Saunders recently lost her husband, Jarrod, of about 7 years. He was killed in the line of duty to his country. Corrie moves into a family owned house that Jarrod leaves to her in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Surprisingly, she loves it! Eli, Jarrod’s cousin, a preacher/contractor is renovating the house for her. Strange things happen in this house, however. Doors slam. Food falls all over the table. Shadows appear. Corrie thinks Jarrod is making an appearance, but Eli does not agree. He thinks an evil spirit inhabits the house. Corrie misses Jarrod so desperately, she is willing to believe anything. Aunt Trudy seems to agree with her that Jarrod is visiting. It sounds like some people living in this region believe in ghosts, etc. Some of these people are in the Saunders family. In some ways, this book reminds me of a Frank Peretti book, although not as graphic. I believe in the spirit world, so I don’t have too much trouble with this aspect of the book, however, I also read mysteries and was waiting throughout the book for the mystery of the occurances to be solved. It was, but not in the way I expected. This is also a sweet romance story. Eli is the perfect man – polite, caring, thoughtful, handsome, etc AND Jarrod’s cousin. Some of the characters could have been developed more. I enjoyed this book, although not one of my favorites. If I were rating with stars, it would be 3 out of 5. I received this book through Blogging for Books for an honest review. I have done that. It is published by WaterBrook Multnomah.
