I was surprised to find a similar storyline behind this novel to a previous book I reviewed. What I was even more surprised to find is that, even with the similar material, this book captured my attention in a way that the other did not. James is a fantastic writer and lets you really see what she has pictured in her mind while writing these novels. I had no trouble picturing the old haunted house the main character lives in and was easily transported through time with her descriptions of a hundred years previous. Yes, there are religious references in this novel, but even a non-religious person would have no trouble reading this book. I was quite the fan and would definitely recommend this book to friends. I will say this though, the book definitely has a romance basis to it and leans a little to the young adult side. That said, I don’t think it is a bad read for those of us who don’t fit into the “Young Adult” genre.
