Overview

A Ghost Story by J.P. Bowie

Past and present exist side by side as the ghost of a young poet seeks to protect the family living in the house he haunts.

Robert 'Robbie' Clavell, a young Victorian poet, is murdered by a jealous competitor, but his murderer, not content with ending Robbie's life, also invokes an ancient curse that forces his spirit to remain earthbound.

When Jamie Barrett, a dancer in London's West End, receives a phone call from his mother telling him of strange knocking noises and furniture moving about, he travels home to Manchester to investigate and give support to his mother and his twelve year old niece, Laura.

Advised to contact a psychic for help, Jamie meets Kevin Singleton, and despite the seriousness of what they discover, the two men find a mutual attraction. Kevin explains to Jamie and his mother that their recent family tragedies had opened a portal allowing base spirits to enter and feed off of Laura's youthful and vibrant energy.

Kevin is able to make a psychic connection with Robbie who tells him that George Russell, his murderer, is the one responsible for the upheaval in the Barrett household. But when Robbie tries to help Kevin exorcise Russell's spirit, Russell summons up an even darker force - one that could not only destroy the house and everyone in it, but ensure Robbie's spirit will never find his way home.

Reader Advisory: This story contains one dubious consent scene.

This well told story about the ghost of a young poet protecting people in the present time had me from page one! The prologue is rich in detail of Victorian times, and the transition to the contemporary is smoothly done. Jamie and Kevin, the two young men who set out to free Robbie's spirit and fall in love along the way are charismatic and very well drawn as is the rest of the characters involved. A great read!
