If this book doesn't have the humor and charm of some of Ms. Michaels' other books such as Shattered Silk, or the Amelia Peabody books (written as Elizabeth Peters), well, it was first published in 1970. Ammie, Come Home suffers a bit on a reread, too. I enjoyed The Dark on the Other Side, and if it's not my favorite in the Michaels oeuvre, so what? It was still a fun outing into the dark.
The novel is certainly a product of the times. Originally written in 1970, this book pulls upon the culture of the time. During that time period, more than one author used occult themes. Given the abilities of Barbara Michaels, it isn't surprising that she succeeded in producing a haunting book.
It isn't a book I would read frequently, but it is one that will stick with me. If I could give it 4.5 stars, I would.
