"The Widow of Saunders Creek" by Tracey Bateman is the story of Corrie Saunders, a promising artist turned Army wife, then widow. Seven months after her husband’s death in Iraq, Corrie moves into the family home, her husband’s inheritance from his grandparents, now hers. Corrie begins to sense a presence in the house and comes to believe her husband is residing there as a ghost.

Corrie’s husband’s cousin, Eli, who is renovating the house for Corrie, knows better, though. Those who’ve inhabited the family home for decades have all sensed this presence and witnessed ghostly things. Eli believes it’s time for these beings to leave, but must convince Corrie.

Though the story has supernatural/spirit world/culture of superstition elements, it’s really a story about overcoming grief, of learning to let go of what is gone and of trusting God as one moves forward with life. Corrie must overcome what is holding her back, tempting her to hang on to her husband as if he were still alive instead of gratefully embracing God’s new gifts.

Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers sent a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review. I enjoyed reading it.
