After being laid off from the newspaper where she worked as a
journalist, and losing her boyfriend in rapid succession, Sara Howell is looking to downsize before her dwindling savings run out. Things are finally starting to look up when she lands a job ghostwriting the biography of a popular politician and rents an isolated island house which turns out to have once been the home of her favorite author, Seth Fortner, who mysteriously disappeared in 1925.
But when strange things start happening, as objects break, or go missing, and terrifying visions appear, Sara begins to wonder if Seth ever left, or if she is losing her mind.
What happened to Seth is a secret closely guarded by the family to this day, a family that seems to exist under a terrible curse. Through an old trunk of letters she discovers in the attic, Sara unravels the mystery and becomes caught up in a tale of greed, lost love and the horrors of WWI.
When Sara realizes she is not going crazy and that Seth Fortner’s spirit still haunts her new home on the isolated island, she begins to draw him out of his shell bit by bit. She will discover what happened to the idealistic young writer who went to the battlefields of France to save lives, and to his beautiful bride to destroy the love between them, and what led Seth to make a terrible choice which would have consequences
that would echo for generations.
They gradually fall in love in their world of dreams, dreams which swiftly become more attractive than reality, as Sara learns from a ghost how to truly live. Will she be the one to break the “Fortner Curse” by helping Seth conquer his demons, and heal both of their hearts in the process?
It was a dark and stormy night in Southern Tennessee. Cerridwen the Reviewer was up, Kindle in hand, determined to finished the book that she was enthralled in. Depsite her husbands' whining , she could not put it down!
Ok so theres not alot of sex in it, but thats was oh so fine by me. Ghostwriter is your classic ghostly love story that is complete with curses and twists. I was able to "be" Sara because I felt her love for literature and books as she went through snooping around this wonderful house in search of answers. It totally would have been something I would have done!
This is such a wonderful read. I have recommended it to several of my friends already!! READ AND ENJOY IT!!! And keep your damn paws off mine!
