Molly is spending three weeks in a restored colonial town and she starts seeing a weeping ghostly girl. What could have happened to haunt the girl's spirit these past three hundred years? My daughter and I read this one together: it's a light ghost story and a good introduction to the Salem witch trials and colonial times. The adult characters are realistic and I appreciated that the characters learned and changed through the course of the book.
I received the book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. A very interesting story and mystery in one. Molly gets interested because she sees Rebecca when no one else does. And as she and her brother Sam work on that, they get closer to their new step-mom, and with the help of Mr Bradbury, it all works out.A great read for all kids.
