A brilliant flash of light transcends through time.
Another freezes a cloaked figure within a frame of salty mist as waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon to a pinprick.
By the next blaze, she is gone. Only the lighthouse remains.
Hannah’s eyes blink in step with each heartbeat. Images of her deceased parents and Martha’s Vineyard explode like firecrackers inside her mind.
She shakes her head.
For weeks this eerie woman dressed in nineteenth century garb has been haunting my webcam, but tonight she stared into my soul.
Who is she? ...
Casting aside months of research on historic lighthouses, Hannah drives to the coast and boards a ferry.
What is the strange connection she has to this mysterious woman suspended in time?
Hannah finds out.
But, it’s not at all what she expects...
The Ghosts of Aquinnah is available on Amazon
Julie Flanders is a remarkable and talented writer and while
reading The Ghosts of Aquinnah I was transported to the
year 1884. Julie writes with such clarity and feeling that you
sympathize, or despise her characters with real emotion.
Unlike her debut novel, Polar Night, which was way creepier
(I mean that in a good way) and has me believing in
Vampires, Ghosts of Aquinnah has a warmer ghostly feel. (If
you understand that) I love the historical aspects of the
book, and you want to scream at the injustice society labeled
women in that time period. The book transcends time from
1884 to modern day, devoid of confusion in any way while
reading. If you've all read the blurb I don't feel the need to
describe the context of the story. However tragic and heart
wrenching for the souls in 1884, all will come to light. The
Ghosts of Aquinnah will haunt you well after you've finished
reading the last page.
