The Premonition at Withers Farm
by Jaime Jo Wright
The voices of the past cannot stay silent forever.
In 1910 Michigan, Perliett Van Hilton is a self-proclaimed rural healer, leaving the local doctor convinced she practices quackery. It doesn’t help that her mother is a spiritualist who regularly offers her services to connect the living with their dearly departed. But when Perliett is targeted by a superstitious killer, she must rely on both the local doctor and an intriguing newcomer for assistance.
In the present day, Molly Wasziak’s life has not gone the way she dreamed. Facing depression after several miscarriages, Molly is adapting to her husband’s purchase of a peculiar old farm. A search for a family tree pulls Molly deep into a century-old murder case and a web of deception, all made more mysterious by the disturbing shadows and sounds inside the farmhouse.
Perliett fights for her life, and Molly seeks renewed purpose for hers as she uncovers the records of the dead. Will their voices be heard, or will time forever silence their truths?
Wow. This is a real ghostly story.
Jaime jo Wright does it again…takes the spooky and
makes it all come out right in the end.
I’ve been putting off writing this review.
This is another one of those books that I feel completely inadequate to write a review.
JJW has a way of blowing me out of the water with her creative genius.
I really don’t like ghost stories. And, well….this story does kind of have some of those tendencies.
In 1910, there is the story of Perliett, a self-proclaimed healer. And her mother, a spiritualist who holds seances and regularly converses with the dead. It is in this time line that there are some very spooky murders taking place.
Then there is the present day heroine, Molly. Her life has been a hard one. She deals with depression. Then when she & her husband move to an old farm, everything just gets a little bit worse. Is she hearing voices, or seeing things….OR WHAT?!
It was very intriguing to me, reading both of these stories, watching for how the storylines would converge and overlap…what would happen both in the past and present day.
Lots of excitement, action, ghost sightings and more. (Warning – I do not recommend this book for anyone with a weak stomach or a faint heart…)
I do recommend this to anyone wanting to discover an exciting and suspense filled adventure.
