"It's rare when a book carries me so deep inside its world that I forget I'm reading. Buy this book. Now. You'll absolutely love it."--JAMES L. RUBART, Christy Hall of Fame author

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?

"A tale of intoxicating menace, eerie elegance, and satisfying suspense."--BOOKLIST starred review of The Souls of Lost Lake

My Review:

Whew… once again Jaime Jo Wright has proved she’s the queen of Christian mystery & Suspense! I might even be willing to say move over Misty Wayfair as her creepiest title, because this one was truly a #DaylightRead! I may never walk into a cornfield again haha. And unfortunately as a nightshifter, I confess to reading this one in the nighttime. I survived. Barely. 😂 HAHA! 

I have to say, if I didn’t already trust this author’s writing, I might not have continued in the beginning. Because she really can lead you down trails that you wonder about ghosts and other paranormal phenomenon– but as someone who has read her books before, I was confident that I would receive a satisfying ending that stayed within Christian boundaries. And I appreciated that. It still didn’t keep me from being creeped out though haha. 

One thing that I love about this author’s writing is that she takes the readers on some pretty emotional rides that reveal deep truths in powerful ways so that they never feel cheesy or cliché. She deeper she dives into the heart of the characters, the deeper she dives into the heart of the reader. Yes, you will most likely feel spooked and look over your shoulder a few times (or more) while reading, but she never wavers from pointing the reader to Christ and giving God the glory. I greatly appreciate and respect that. 

I HIGHLY recommend this one! But read it in the daytime. Trust me, you’ll thank me later 😉
