The Ghosts Of Melrose (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: For a hundred and fifty years, the Southern Iowa town of Melrose has been a haven for the Irish Catholic families who settled there. But for the Keanes, it would be their hell. Born into a family outcast by their own, Aidan Keane lived a tortured existence. Coming of age in depression era Melrose, Aidan finds the one thing that gives him hope in this world only to lose her too. In the end, Aidan discovers that time does not heal all wounds, but love, true love, is the only thing that can. This page turning novel will have you in tears and wishing that you hadn't read it as fast as you did when it is over.
