Rosi's Castle by Edward Eaton

Orphaned, Rosi Carol is sent to live with her mysterious Uncle Richard in his eerie castle on the New England coast. Rosi feels even more of an outcast when she discovers the townspeople believe the Carol family has some kind of magical hold over New Richmond. Even her new friends are afraid of her. She soon discovers there may be some truth to the rumors. The castle seems to have a mind of its own with lights turning off and on and doors locking and unlocking with no one in sight. A strange dark cloud has dogged her since the train station. The ghosts of the Widows from New Richmond's past blame Rosi for their husbands never returning from the sea. Her only allies are a Girl in Black (gone as suddenly as she appears) and Jesse (a paranormal reporter no one else can see). Can Rosi discover what the Widows want? What about the Girl in Black? Can Jesse help her find the answers or is he another big mystery? And why can't her watch keep proper time?

A Must Read!! Brought to you by OBS reviewer Dawn Not much of a synopsis huh? I didn’t know much and I assumed I wouldn’t like the book. I was so wrong! I loved it, even when I had no idea what the hell was going on! I was compelled to know more about Rosi from the start. It’s difficult to describe her. She has no clue what’s going on either, but I haven’t laughed that hard in a while. Rosi has spunk and she gets her point across. Rosi handles herself fairly well considering the bizarre experiences she’s having. She gets to meet a plethora of characters, each one unique and weird. And Rosi just takes it in stride. Meanwhile, she’s putting the puzzle pieces together. Rosi’s Castle is a must read. I recommend it to men, women and young adults. It has appeal across the board.

Reviewed by Lorraine Carey for Readers Favorite "Rosie's Castle" will capture the curiosity of the YA reader when an orphaned young teen is catapulted into the world of the bizarre and paranormal as she is sent away to live with an uncle in a small New England town. She settles in an eerie castle that holds dark secrets and magic deep within its walls. Unbeknownst to her, she discovers that she holds the magic key and learns the town's secret to the never-ending paranormal events around every dark corner. Shades of the 1980's thriller "The Fog" came to mind. Rosie's quick wit and sharp tongue surprisingly save her on many occasions. Rosie was left with a lot of responsibility here and a huge burden to bear. Edward Eaton is a master at setting the stage with great descriptive wording. I felt myself right there with Rosie as she discovers this charming but gloomy place. The plot is highly believable and I even found myself feeling sorry for the victims. I feel young teens who enjoy the paranormal will find this story very enticing. Eaton has included some well known interesting factual data on the paranormal and some bits of new age science terminology which strikes a cord of high interest. Each magical event held a different level of excitement. As an enthusiast myself and an author of this subject, I was engaged all throughout the story. As a veteran Reading Specialist I can tell you this was always the kind of genre my students craved!
