It’s not every day a ghost curls up in your lap …

But when little Henrietta decides I’m trustworthy and introduces me to her teacher, Charlotte, I find myself wrapped up in the story of their murders.

Before long, my friends and I are saving a building, solving a murder, and telling the stories that a lot of people in our small town would rather be left untold.

Our best hope for ourselves and for Henrietta and Charlotte is that the truth really will set us free.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Audiobook Empire. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Once again Mary finds herself transported, this time to a schoolhouse, where she meets a teacher and her twelve students. She’s horrified when she finds out what happened to them. There’s a whole new level of horror when she realizes the culprits are still alive!

Like the last time when Mary ended up in a cemetery, her team of friends do a lot of research into the people involved and try to find a solution so that the children and their teacher can move on. They try to have a circle of truth with the men who caused the deaths, and eventually get the children and their parents together to say goodbye.

The narrator did a good job. Her pace is good and the story flows well. Mary is the narrator of the story in the book, and Aven Shore’s voice fit the part well.

Mary’s gift is extraordinary, and it still amazes me how people just accept it. This book is more about racism in the 20th century which continues today. It is fiction that middle school readers or young adults will enjoy while learning about a terrible part of our history.

Andi Cumbo-Floyd lives in the Southwestern Mountains of Virginia with her young son, an old dog, and a puppy who likes to eat furniture. When she’s not writing she likes to cross-stitch, binge magical shows, and garden.

Aven Shore is an audiobook narrator living in her off-grid tiny house in rural Eastern Canada, surrounded by forest and chicken friends, and honeybees. She loves books so much she’s listening to one almost every minute she’s not narrating one (she narrates romance as Avie Paige). She narrates live on Discord with other romance narrators on the Haven server. She is longing to travel and hike in mountains again, and dreaming of sleep in the lava fields of Iceland under Northern lights again, her favorite place in the world. Her past lives include being a carpenter, firefighter, tax accountant, and competitive snowboarder.
