Thank goodness I am only an "observer" to the spookiness surrounding Overhome because if this was actually happening to me.... underpants would've been changed more than once. Ominous
voices, strange noises, angry spirits, and so....... Nope, I think I will pass on the ghostbusting business, thank you very much.
Through the Twilight Zone occurences, what I most loved about BTS was the historical aspects of this novel. I liked to mention the special note from Susan in the opening credits which I think adds value to her story.
"The Civil War letters included in Beneath the Stone are based on actual letters written from battle fronts by family ancestors, Joseph Franklin Stover and John William Stover. "
That bit of information brought the story MORE TO LIFE (for me) and I think it will for you too.
One final thing, thank you for educating me (us) on the chemistry behind making wine. It was enlightening!!
I really enjoyed the layers to this book, including the young, rascally cousin Jeff, the M&M Wedding Express (bridal planners), and the interesting history tidbits. My favorite part was Ashby’s interaction with the paranormal and what she learns about herself.
Susan Coryell’s writing is a pleasure to read and continues to remind me of a modern Victoria Holt. I’m hoping there will be a book 3. I think Ashby might have a new profession working full time with ghosts, spirits, and all things paranormal!
This is an honest review in return for a copy of the book from the author.
Ashby is getting ready to marry Luke, her longtime boyfriend and fiancé who has just finished veterinary school. But Ashby has some pressing problems. Overhome is in financial trouble. Ashby announces at a family dinner that her plan is to sell off fifty acres to a developer to ward off bankruptcy. At this point, the overhead chandelier in the dining room comes ominously close to crashing down on the family. It is the warning and initial threat of a family ghost.
Ashby has discovered an eerie boarded up house on a distant part of the property. Hal Reynolds, a local historian, believes it had once been an overseer’s cottage. Ashy and her young cousin Jeff explore it together. It proves to be a creepy place inhabited by spirits. The use of diaries and family documents was an effective literary device.
Because I do not want to spoil this engrossing novel for other readers, I’ll just say that the mystery associated with the family’s past history kept me reading until the very end. I recommend this novel for readers of paranormal novels and find it well-suited to adults, new adults as well as teens.
