Eve: A Christmas Ghost Story by Shani Struthers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Just finished this and am so sad it's over! Thank goodness the Psychic Surveys series itself isn't over, though, with a new installment on the way. Like the series that follows, this prequel is such a haunting yet cozy, perfect-for-curling-up-to-in-winter read that strikes emotional chords and explores the mystical in both a gentle and compelling way. Struthers consistently characterizes so fully with vivid and realistic description (including characters' endearing quirks) and well-developed inner and external conflicts. Every character, no matter how secondary, living or dead, adds something meaningful to the mix, and the result is a soulful journey indeed. Fantastic blend of historical fact (a tragic Christmas Eve miners' party) and imaginative fiction, threaded together with so much heart--and a good amount of fright!
