GHOST 19 - A Novella

In small town upstate New York in 1959, actress Ginette Cox needs peace and quiet. Fresh from the hospital after her nervous breakdown, isolated from everyone she’s ever known — and trapped by agoraphobia —  Ginette watches her neighbors from the window of 19 Howard Avenue.

The lonely would-be writer. The little girl seemingly without parents. The young just-married couple. The boisterous playing kids. They are Ginette’s lifeline to the real world, day in and day out — her refuge from her own mind. And the best distraction from the noises in the basement… and the voices in her head that are increasingly real.

As her inner nightmare intensifies, Ginette realizes that someone… someone outside her window is no longer alive. One of them is a ghost, a murder victim. If she can hang on to the thread of her sanity long enough, she might even see who did it. But what if it’s all an illusion? And if it isn’t, who will ever believe a madwoman?

And the most important question of all:

If the victim is outside the window, then who is inside the house?

England, 1921. Three years after her husband, Alex, disappeared, shot down over Germany, Jo Manders still mourns his loss. Working as a paid companion to Alex’s wealthy, condescending aunt, Dottie Forsyth, Jo travels to the family’s estate in the Sussex countryside.

All is not well at Wych Elm House. Dottie’s husband is distant, and her son was grievously injured in the war. Footsteps follow Jo down empty halls, and items in her bedroom are eerily rearranged.

Isolated in a place of deception and grief, she must find the truth or lose herself forever.

And then a familiar stranger arrives at Wych Elm House…
