Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
I remember when I first saw this book and all of the rave reviews for it, that I thought it was one that I would pass on. I don’t do the horror/paranormal well and I expected it to be what I called “ghost-creepy.” Instead what I found was that I was entirely hooked and Jaime Jo Wright has officially become a must-read author for me! Her ability to go into the territory she does without stepping outside of Christian boundaries and make it entirely believable is simply masterful. If you haven’t read any of her books yet you need to remedy that right away. They’re all amazing. This was my first on by her and so it will always hold a special place with me <3
About the Book:
For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant façade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she’s wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she’ll uncover.
A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father’s newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon’s son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town–but it isn’t until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they’ve waded into.
Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it’s too late and they lose their future–or their very souls.
