Publisher's Summary

Alicen McAffery finally has the life her mother always dreamed for her: a beautiful home in Santa Monica, a successful husband, and an adorable daughter. Then tragedy blows her carefully assembled facade to pieces. Worse yet - Alicen feels solely responsible. 

At rock bottom, she decides to accompany a childhood friend back to Red Lodge, Montana, where they spent summers together as kids.The peaceful mountain landscape, accented with lush forests and small-town charm, brings back happy memories of time spent with her beloved, eccentric Grandma Josephine. Alicen begins to hope that perhaps things could be different here. Perhaps the oppressive guilt will lift - if only for a moment.

But when Alicen starts hearing voices and seeing mysterious figures near the river in the woods, she begins to fear she's completely lost her sanity, as it's rumored her grandmother did. Or might there be more to Red Lodge than meets the eye? Could the voices and visions be real - and her only means of finding the healing she so desperately needs? Or will they prove to be her final undoing?

Fascinating!

When Jane, Alison's daughter, drowns in a swimming pool, Alison blames herself and soon starts to lose her mind with grief. She begins to hear voices and see children who want to lead her to the Light. Battle rages in Alison's mind and soul as her mother and others tries to get her medical assistance but will it poison her even more? I am fascinated by the workings of the mind but even more so the spiritual message of love and forgiveness spoke music to my soul.

An adventure into mind & spirit

It took me a while to get hooked. The disturbing evenrs & struggles of the main character opened my eyes to what some must press throught to get freedom.

Bravo bravo bravo

This was a wonderfully refreshing book with the perfect narrator. Thank you Rachelle and I am so looking forward to future books by you. Your truly are your Daddy’s daughter with your artistic ability to write love and forgiveness in your story. I enjoyed the references to some of your Daddy’s books as well. More more more please

Too long and redundant

I Struggled to finish; the build up was slow and the resolution too fast. The reader was a little dry.

not for me

I found the characters and storyline difficult to engage with. A weird choice to include magical realism in such a negative way. Didn't finish

I kept waiting to like this book but....

Other reviews mentioned the fact that it took a while to get into this book, and that gave me hope that eventually I too would reach a point where I could connect with the story. So, I diligently kept listening. Unfortunately, it never happened for me. I thought the story made little sense and until the very end I was still waiting for that 'ah-hah' moment, which didn't happen. I feel like I wasted good listening hours and a credit on this book. This book i gets a hard 'NO' from me. On the upside, the narrator was great.

Not a thriller - Jesus/bible/etc stuff- be warned!!

I wish I were warned that this was not really a thriller or ghost story. It’s fine to write Christian literature, but please market it as such so we who aren’t interested don’t waste our time.

a book with a purpose

This was a good story I love a book with a purpose, or message but it was very slow moving. When the action did start it didn't gain very much momentum. The book seemed to jump too much between the two main characters. If you are not paying close attention you might get a bit lost and we all know how life gets in the way sometimes. Even though she tied up the Loose Ends I was not satisfied with it ending.... I love books that I would go back to and read again, and this is not one of them but I don't regret reading it.

Great listen

Rather compelling and kept my interest piqued from beginning to end! Great narrator which makes or breaks the book, in my opinion.
