...a mesmerizing tale of family, love, loss, and, of course, ghosts. Because the story of Mehitable is set just at the turn of the nineteenth century, there are some interesting Revolutionary War ghosts introduced through Mehitable's calling to help earth-bound spirits continue their journeys. There is also Mehitable's own love story, which is as unusual as she is. Fans of the television series, The Ghost Whisperer will certainly enjoy this offering of the generational series. With its intriguing subject matter, its historical details, and its psychological insights, this book grabs the imagination from its beginning. - The US Review of Books theusreview.com
"This book was mesmerizing... Fitz-Gerald's writing flows brilliantly and despite the ghost encounters, or maybe because of them, the book has moments of serenity and tranquility. This is a wonderful read and one that should be savored." - Katherine Eminhizer/Amazon Review
"Mehitable is a heroine who's easy to root for. The author puts her through so much, including exorcising a demon without anyone's help-or at least, without the help of anyone living. What a brave and compassionate young woman." -Elyse Becker/Amazon Review
"Each page seems to offer a happening and reflection on Mehitable's interactions with the ghosts who frequent her barn quarters and her area. I found the book to be so engrossing that it was hard to put down. I kept finding myself wondering what would happen next. I was wrong every time." -Cecile Betit/Amazon Review
"I loved She Sees Ghosts! It is one of those stories that is so engaging that you can't put it down until finished - and then you're sorry it's over because you'll miss the characters you've met and grown to know and care about. I especially appreciate the author's way of blending fiction with history - a unique combination of entertainment and historical insight that makes the readers experience even more enjoyable. I look forward to Mr. Fitz-Gerald's next adventure!" - Sue Butler/Amazon Review

Also, there were 3 significant errors in the book that should have been caught by the author or editor. Early on Mehitable is talking to Reuben but in a new paragraph the name was Polly then continues on to Mehitable. I read that half a dozen times to be sure & it should have been her & not Polly. Then a little later he says she was concerned about hyperthermia if she went into a cold lake or river. That should have been HYPOthermia. Hyper means above, hypo below & she was concerned about becoming too cold in the cold water which is hypothermia. I can't remember the 3rd which was closer to the end, but it was something similar. Just careless stuff.
So, while I found this somewhat enjoyable & did like the ghost & spiritual aspect I really can't recommend it. Overall, for me it was just OK.
This is the second book I've read from David and what I really enjoy about his books is that they are out-of-the-box historicals. Combining history with elements of the paranormal and spirituality and human nature, it's a nice change from the usual fare.
Set in the late 1800s She Sees Ghosts tells the story of Mehitable Munsch who can see spirits and helps them pass on to the afterlife. It's the Revolutionary War era and there are a lot of unsettled ghosts of Soldiers in the area. She is also haunted by one that followed her from her home after her family tragedy. Mehitable is a wonderful character that fascinated me from the start.
The author has a personal connection to the Adirondacks and his passion for the area leaps off the pages. I seriously need to travel there one day!
If you're looking for a fascinating read that will help you escape reality for a little bit, I highly recommend She Sees Ghosts!
She Sees Ghosts is a paranormal historical fiction taking place during the early 1800's as America was being settled and war was not too far in the past. Mehitable's journey showcases the hardships of the time along with the triumphs and tranquility that the era provided. Mehitable's character seemed ahead of her time and I loved that she was able to be her own person and choose a different route than what was expected of her. The paranormal elements weaved in slowly and sensibly as to not overwhelm the story. I did enjoy the stories of the spirits and how Mehitable was able to grow as she helped the spirits pass. The description of the setting of the Adirondack Mountains was enchanting, I have been to many of the areas and liked seeing the unspoiled areas through Mehitable's eyes. I'm glad that Mehitable was able to have a relationship on her own terms; however, I wish they would have gotten to know each other better. I will definitely continue reading in the Adirondack Spirits Series.
Mehitable is a heroine who's easy to root for. The author puts her through so much, including exorcising a demon without anyone's help—or at least, without the help of anyone living. What a brave and compassionate young woman. As someone with a sleep disorder, I could particularly sympathize with how restless spirits robbed Mehitable of her rest for years. I was so happy when she experienced happiness. I also want the recipe for her pumpkin, oat, and maple cookies! I believed in her little community and her wanderings in the woods; the author made them feel real. Some fictional cats make an appearance as well.
However, the author does some head-hopping that annoyed me, as did the non-ending. Is there a sequel in the works?
