What would you do if you found your dream house and it was rumored to be haunted? Would you buy it anyway? Would every noise in the still of the dark night have you paralyzed with fear?
Alice and Mark O'Brien don't believe in ghosts. They fall in love with Hawthorn Grange on their first viewing. Amused by the rumors, they buy and move into The Grange.
With Mark working the graveyard shift, Alice is alone at night. Alone with the sounds from an old house, with the words of the neighbors whispering around her, the stories of the shadows arising from the graves next door and making their way into the house.
Will her imagination succumb to the rumors? Is that a door creaking open? Who is that standing at the foot of her bed? Is it just a dream? A nightmare of real or imagined proportions follows Alice around as she tries to remember that ghosts don't exist. Or do they?

Yvonne McEvaddy conjured up a story that ghost lovers everywhere would enjoy. The easy flow of her words along with the intriguing storyline made Shadows of the Dead difficult to walk away from. Yvonne succeeded in creating the right amount of gloom with her pacing and descriptions. It was not difficult to see the scenes in my head. I truly enjoyed this read. I know you will too.
