Read full description of the books:Haunted by Haunting
Elizabeth Marshall might be tempted to consider herself somewhat outside her normal genre when writing ghost stories. Readers may wonder what to expect with Haunting Grace. But I'll tell you: She had me by the second paragraph.
Of the prologue.
Haunting Grace carries the same warm, human element of other Elizabeth Marshall works. We get to know main character Grace by her recent tribulations; we commisserate with her as she begins a new life, vascillating between true-ringing alternations of courage and doubt. And we wonder at a strangeness that creeps immediately into her life--so immediate that one wonders deep in the soul at the possibility of Destiny's hand.
It's difficult to say too much without spoiling this warm yet spooky human drama, so I'll be a little brief. Marshall crafts the language like she always does--deftly, softly. With heart. Her main character and support cast are all realistic, as is their dialog. Feels very real, very street-corner or office or public house. And all the while, a reader gets this odd creepy feeling.
I have to say I thought, and still think, there may be more to this tale than a short story allowed. It almost feels like the opening of a much larger, much more provocative work. All the same, it holds its own nicely, an island of questions and haunting suspense, and yes ultimate revelation, in what might be a bigger picture.
Maybe the thought of that bigger picture is what makes it seem as realistic as it does. No one's life is a twenty-minute read, after all. Grace seems real; I'm still thinking about her.
I have to say I love Marshall's style and grace, and I was caught up in this tale in a way her fans will lap up like milk. Haunting Grace is the stuff of which Marshall's magic is made.
Read information about the authorElizabeth Marshall is the pen name of the author of the ‘Highland Secret Series’. She was born on Christmas Eve at St Mary’s Hospital, at the Marianhill Monastery, in the province of Natal, South Africa.
Elizabeth grew up in a small village called Hillcrest surrounded by a large Scottish farming family.
Her primary education was delivered by Nuns from the Monastery in which she was born. The teaching that Elizabeth received during her primary school days provided an invaluable foundation and grounding.
Smiling, Elizabeth recalls a gift, presented to her by Sister Domianis at the end of a school year. It was a prayer card and on it was simply written the word – Patience.
Through secondary school and into adult-hood, Elizabeth’s life centred on a love of reading, music, writing and history.
A hopeless romantic and dreamer with a head full of stories, Elizabeth wanted desperately to write.
Many real adventures later and Elizabeth is now living in the land of her ancestors and telling the stories she was born to tell.
