The Blurb: 

A blazing fire killed her family and devoured her home. A vengeful demon haunted her. Ghosts of the Revolutionary War needed help that only she could provide. A young woman languished, desperate to survive, and teetered on the edge of sanity. 

Mehitable grew up in a freshly tamed town, carved from the primeval forest. Family, friends, and working at the mercantile filled her days and warmed her heart. For Mehitable, life was simple and safe, until tragedy struck. When her family perished in their burning home, she retreated into a world of her own making. 

As a young girl, she had seen glimmers, glimpses, and flickers of the spirit world. She closed her eyes. She turned her back. She ignored the apparitions that she never spoke of, desperately hoping they would leave her in peace. She was mistaken. 

Grief-stricken, Mehitable withdrew from the human world. Ghosts were everywhere. They became bolder. She could no longer turn her back on the spirit world. Her friends feared for her survival. Nobody understood her. She would have to find her own way.

 Fans of TV’s Ghost Whisperer and Long Island Medium will especially love She Sees Ghosts. This historical novel features memorable characters and delivers bone-tingling, spine chilling goosebumps. It stands on its own and it is the next installment in the Adirondack Spirit Series by the award-winning author of Wanders Far―An Unlikely Hero’s Journey. David Fitz-Gerald delivers a historical novel with a bittersweet ending that you won’t see coming. 

Would she save the spirits’ souls, or would they save her? Only time would tell.

About the author:

David Fitz-Gerald writes fiction that is grounded in history and soars with the spirits. Dave enjoys getting lost in the settings he imagines and spending time with the characters he creates. Writing historical fiction is like making paintings of the past. He loves to weave fact and fiction together, stirring in action, adventure, romance, and a heavy dose of the supernatural with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. He is an Adirondack 46-er, which means that he has hiked all of the highest peaks in New York State, so it should not be surprising when Dave attempts to glorify hikers as swashbuckling superheroes in his writing. She Sees Ghosts―A Story of a Woman Who Rescues Lost Souls is the next instalment in the Adirondack Spirit Series.

My Review:

She Sees Ghosts is set in an interesting, but to my mind, neglected period in American history. The story takes place in that time between the American Revolution and the Civil War. The main character, Mehitable, turns sixteen on New Years Eve, 1799. She thinks she knows the path she'll take to adulthood but it all comes to a halt with the sudden death of her entire family in a terrible fire. The loss of her family damages here psyche and she finds she is unable to sleep in a house, and resorts to living in a barn. To keep her company she has her animals and  her ghosts. 

Always able to catch glimpses of specters, they appear to her as life life characters, not always nice. She uses her ability to guide them into the after-life.  

Mehitable's story is interesting as she carves out a unique life for herself with the help of her childhood friends. The author blends historical fact and paranormal suspense into a good read. 

I recommend this book to those who enjoy their history with a twist!
