I LOVED this book! It could have gone the way of silly, simpering southern tale of the girl who inherits a historic mansion in Charleston, but not with the skills of Karen white.

She could be a textbook example for writers conferences and how to books of the perfect way to develop a protag and have her change over teh course of the story. And she made her ability to see the ghosts in the house not spooky or silly or teenage vampirish, but just the way she IS...

karen White has a enviable skill to reveal personalities, physical characteristics, plot twists and other details in a smooth, subtle, natural, real life way that keeps the reader nose down into the book, or ears perked up to the audio...

I sure can recommend this one -- read it or better yet listen to it. White can even smoothly round up a finish without being saccharine or leaving us on the edge of the cliff.
