About the Author
p.m.terrell is the pen name for Patricia McClelland Terrell, the award-winning, internationally acclaimed author of more than twenty books in four genres: contemporary suspense, historical suspense, computer how-to and non-fiction. Prior to writing full-time, she founded two computer companies in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area: McClelland Enterprises, Inc. and Continental Software Development Corporation. Among her clients were the Central Intelligence Agency, United States Secret Service, U.S. Information Agency, and Department of Defense. Her specialties were in white collar computer crimes and computer intelligence. A full-time author since 2002, Black Swamp Mysteries was her first series, inspired by the success of Exit 22, released in 2008. Vicki’s Key was a top five finalist in the 2012 International Book Awards and 2012 USA Book Awards nominee, and The Pendulum Files was a national finalist for the Best Cover of the Year in 2014. Her second series, Ryan O’Clery Suspense, is also award-winning. The Tempest Murders (Book 1) was one of four finalists in the 2013 International Book Awards, cross-genre category. The White Devil of Dublin (Book 2) was released one year later. Her historical suspense, River Passage, was a 2010 Best Fiction and Drama Winner. It was determined to be so historically accurate that a copy of the book resides at the Nashville Government Metropolitan Archives in Nashville, Tennessee. Songbirds are Free is her bestselling book to date; it is inspired by the true story of Mary Neely, who was captured in 1780 by Shawnee warriors near Fort Nashborough (now Nashville, TN). She is also the co-founder of The Book ‘Em Foundation, an organization committed to raising public awareness of the correlation between high crime rates and high illiteracy rates. She is the organizer and chairperson of Book ‘Em North Carolina, an annual event held in the real town of Lumberton, North Carolina, to raise funds to increase literacy and reduce crime. For more information on this event and the literacy campaigns funded by it, visit www.bookemnc.org. She sits on the boards of the Friends of the Robeson County Public Library and the Robeson County Arts Council. She has also served on the boards of Crime Stoppers and Crime Solvers and became the first female president of the Chesterfield County-Colonial Heights Crime Solvers in Virginia.

If you enjoy love stories, spirit communication and the paranormal, you will no doubt find this book enchanting!
If you've become fond of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series then A Thin Slice of Heaven will give you even more reason to google books on the British Isles.
With Terrell's usual brilliant descriptions we get all of our sense's involved as we traverse the hallways and passages of Bracken Castle with our leading female character, Charleigh.
Known as Charlie, she's come to the castle for a hopeful second honeymoon, when her husband, through a text no less, dumps her for someone else. Luckily, Sean, our gallant Irishman, steps to her side, a place he seems quite comfortable at. Charlie is at once taken aback by the attention, but after her night in the pity pool decides that it's about time she was appreciated so why not go for it.
Terrell is at heart a teacher and this time around we learn about the stages we go through but from the spirit's side of things. She doesn't push or prod us just offers good pacing and interesting thoughts to ponder on life and what happens beyond the veil.
As Charleigh and Sean's story proceeds we go from the castle to the nearby country village to the tower's parapet and beyond to a realm both scary and revelatory with historical significance highlighted.
I especially enjoyed the tone of the romantic liaisons between the two characters. Romance has not always been in the forefront of Terrell's books and she does a lovely job with these moments. The subtle and playful way that Sean passes on information to Charleigh, who is having a problem understanding exactly what's going on around her and within her soul. A soul she has unfortunately lost contact with over the years while being the dutiful daughter and competent manager.
I found it hard to book this down once I started. What was happening in this castle that seem to flit from one time period to another? And what was the real reason for the secret passage ways and the warnings about Christmas Eve? We eventually get those answers and some are quite shocking despite what we learned in history 101. This will most likely be a book you'll want to read again after the final bits come together and that aha moment has passed.
Terrell is transitioning. I'm expecting that are favourite characters are still waiting in the wings for their next installment, but for now like the butterfly within she has spread her wings and we all get to go along for the ride!
