Journal Entry 1 by EllyMae58 from El Cajon, California USA on Sunday, March 20, 2016
Estranged patriarch Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind a country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His alienated family - bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna - have arrived for their inheritance.

But the Walkers are not alone. Alice and Sandra, two long-dead and restless ghosts, linger within the house's claustrophobic walls, bound eternally to its physical structure. Jostling for space and memory, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself - in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb.

The living and dead are haunted by painful truths that surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide - with cataclysmic results.

Read from Februrary 4-8, 2016

I am not going to rave about how good this book is. Truth be told, I'm not even sure I'd call it a good book. However... I liked it. I can't even really put my finger on exactly why, but it pulled me in from the first page. I was intrigued and had a hard time putting it down. Probably the fastest I've read a book in a long time. I enjoyed the multiple viewpoints and short chapters and how all the stories wove into each other and I even enjoyed the ending. For me, this was just a spooky, enthralling read.
