This book was just brilliant. I was captivated by the story and the characters right from the very first page.
The story tells the tale of Shelley Parker, her mother and brother, Faith Dobbins and her mother and father, who is the Pastor at the church. There are also a couple of other characters that are vital to the story. Shelley can see ghosts, as can one or two other characters in the book, and she is being haunted by the ghost of a young girl who is insisting Shelley reads her diary – she even tells her where to find it.
Pastor Dobbins is one of the central characters in this book and he is as rotten as they come. Shelley, her mother and Faith and her mother, along with a handful of ghosts are trying to bring an end to Pastor Dobbins reign of terror. The story weaves in and out of each other integral characters lives throughout the book, building the suspense and anticipation to a fever pitch, until the point of no return is reached for each of the characters.
A very well written, gripping tale of love and betrayal and the building and destroying of friendships. The author really captivates the reader right from the off and keeps you hooked right until the end. Clever and brilliantly written. Cannot recommend highly enough.
