This book is a little different. It made me think that there is darkness lurking around you even when you may not see it. that we can get caught up in the darkness if we are not careful. that we can even begin to believe that what we thought to be truth gets distorted by others around us. But thankfully in the book there is a light that reminds us that the true faith and true light will always overide darkeness. The characters are mysterious but love wins out and fights against the darkness that is trying to shroud them. The witchcraft element is apparent in the book and makes me wonder how many people we are surrounded by that may have ill intentions and may use their craft to bring up spirits against us. The witch was very sneaky and even appeared to be on the widow's side at times and even seemed sincere in her helpfulness. The widow is faced with finding out if the spirit that is dwelling the in home is that of her belated husband or that of another dark entity. Only faith and truth can help her decided but she is fighting to find that too. it is an interesting read but not sure i would have bought it if presented at the store.
