This free, 17 page short story was creepy. It was very well written and edited. It was suspensful. The style reminded me of Stephen King's son's writing. ( I can not remember his name, though I have wracked my brain.) Hmm.... I am a poet and did not know it. This a story about a young girl helping her father with geneology research. Her mother disappeared years ago. The story tells what happened to the mom, but not why, nor exactly what the ghost is and why what happens with it occurs. Is it a family only event? I was left wondering about several things, as if the story was incomplete or a prequal. It is a celtic tale. Ages 12 and up. AD
It was a very short ghost story making you wonder where the ghost fits in the story or why it's there.
