The Widow of Saunders Creek
|May 24, 2012||Filed under Reviews|
Corrie Saunders loses her husband Jarrod, an army soldier who was in Iraq. Six month after his death, she moves into a home he had inherited and loved because it was the closest she could get to having him back in her life. She soon meets Jarrod’s cousin Eli and the two have undeniable chemistry, which, not surprisingly, invokes some guilt.
However, the house is haunted and Eli isn’t so sure that dabbling in the occult is healthy for Corrie — no matter how desperately she misses her husband. Is it really Jarrod or is it the devil in disguise?
I have to admit that I was shocked that a Christian writer would tackle drinking to the point of having brown bottle flu, seances, and the like. These are pretty taboo subjects and she handled them gracefully. I’ve never been one to believe in ghosts, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a good story that involves them. If you have a fascination with the paranormal and enjoy a bit of romance or simply want to read something that you wouldn’t normally, pick up a copy! I was not at all disappointed.
