    Wanted to like this book so much!

    I, like a few others I see on here, really wanted to like this book. In the beginning I was riveted, but there are big, big flaws. I am going to talk about some of them, but be warned there are spoilers.

    First off, the way the author flips across time is ineffective at best, and disheartening to the reader at worst. As soon as something really exciting happens to Jordan we are darting back to the late 1800's to be wit Haddy... And vice versa. This prevented me from ever feeling like I got payoff.

    The ghosts seem to lack personality, and I'm not sure if this was a (bad) choice by the author, or simply a sign that she had trouble writing them. When Haddy and her sister are alive they are full of personality, but as ghosts they seem like a hollow device. Where has Haddy's determination and intelligence gone? Charlotte's energy?

    I could list more, but large structural problems like this ruined what could have been an amazing story. Such a bummer.
