“I know who you are, Ivy. Scrubbing away all those bloodstains will never, ever erase what they did.”
Aw, this is the last Friday 56 of October. So in honor of Halloween tomorrow, I’m sharing an excerpt from Cat Winters’s The Uninvited, a novel about a women cursed with a ghostly gift. Happy Halloween to everyone! Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From my review:
“It’s 1918 and the flu epidemic is spreading. When Ivy Rowan recovers from the sickness, she discovers that her town of Buchanan, Illinois has been struck hard. Adding to the grief is her brother’s death in the war overseas. In a fit of anger, her father and younger brother beat a young German to death. Sickened by their behavior, Ivy leaves home for the first time. She reaches out to the victim’s brother, hoping to escape the guilt, but Ivy is haunted by the ghosts of loved ones, apparitions that only appear when someone close to her is about to die.” See my full review here.
