Mary's trunk is a writer entering his thoughts about life's little frustrations, hopes, and true but strange thoughts about squirrels. Now top this all off with his acquisition of a trunk and a ghost and you have a fun read. Plus.'. there is an extra bonus with a chapter by Annie Acorn ( Great book,too)
5.0 out of 5 starsThere is magic in the world

I was not sure what to expect. It is after all about a haunted trunk and a ghost named Mary. Not only was it surprising, but turned into a sort of quiet diary about other things in life. Surviving, love and the magic of an old steamer trunk. I won't give away the story, but I do believe that this story is real. It makes me hesitate to purchase old things..in case they have more going on than I bargained for. There are many people out there who have experienced things they cannot explain away. Instead of the writer being upset by it, he sees this as an opportunity of sorts. Well worth the read, it sure got me thinking about Mary and the why that always lingers. Life is magical if you just allow yourself to be open. In many ways this story is about acceptance. I wonder, as I write this if Mary did not chose this person, rather than the other side of the coin?

I feel like I've just finished reading letters written to me from, well, anywhere but here... written just to me, so I could know what happens day to day and take a peek into Mary's world of, let's say malingering after death.
There are some mighty fine synonyms for malingering, but I think we'll stick with this one.
Ron Shaw' s Mary's Trunk is a delightful read with the comforting melody of Mr. Shaw' s southern drawl inviting us into his home and heart as we explore page by page.
What a pleasure to meet a Victorian ghost....Just the kind of house guest I could envision for a Southern gentleman and his family!

In this first installment of the Cramped Quarters series, we are not only introduced to Mary, the intriguing ghost, but meet Miss Donna and daughter, Amber, not to mention a menagerie of Georgian wildlife.

Now, what would a  genteel Victorian ghost of a woman be doing in an Atlanta suburb? And did she pick this family, or did they pick her?

Sit by and watch Mary make herself known to the Shaw family. Mr. Shaw' innate aptitude for storytelling leaves you with visions in your mind's eye of a woman longing to be set free. Who and what is holding Mary back? And what does she aim to accomplish?

Mary of many moods. Questions linger...do ghosts carry with them the human traits of feeling empathy and showing sensitivity? Think about that one as Miss Donna begins a journey down a different path and we observe a kinder and gentler version of Mary.

Told with sweetness and humor, Ron Shaw' s Mary's Trunk is warm and inviting, and more than once I felt like maybe I had just had a glimpse of a haunting in Mayberry.

From the Author

This initial book and the ones that follow are the result of haunts that continue. The series has been both fun, troubling, and at times scary to convey to the reader.
Within her series, our ghost has taken me places I never intended, expected or even wanted to travel. The life, lives, stories, and sights revealed are incredible.
Mary presents her life, heart and soul to me, and to this point, it's been nothing short of astonishing.
I'll show you what Mary has given me.
This is Mary's story.
