"Madness is a wonderful excuse, don't you think?"
When Ruthie's most mysteriously disappears, she and her sister must find a way to get her back. In doing so, they discover the hidden diary of Sara Harrison Shea from over a century ago - and they suddenly find themselves in a modern-day ghost story of their own.
Part history/thriller/horror/mystery - this novel has everything needed for wonderfully engrossing page-turner that I couldn't put down. Luckily my husband was up north hunting all weekend and my daughter went to bed early so I was able to stay up way-to-late finishing it! The writing was beautiful and brilliant and I loved the historical aspects. And it completely freaked me out more than a couple of times. There goes my dream of wanting to live in the middle of the woods. Eh.
This book was #8 on my top ten list of 2015.
