About The Book:
Recently widowed Sylvie Andrus moves with her young son, Jason, to a small river town, and discovers she must solve a two-century old mystery to rid herself of the ghost who haunts her. Still grieving, she finds the ghost of her husband, Ned, waiting in her new home to seduce her. Jason warns Sylvie the ghost is evil but, swept up by her yearning for her husband and determined to reveal what happened to Clarinda Braxton, a Revolutionary Era painter who disappeared without a trace in 1794, she delays, putting her son’s life in peril.
Sylvie and her son have moved into an old house in a quaint little River town. She is recently widowed and struggling to overcome her recent loss. Little does she know she is being possessed by a ghost, Clarinda Braxton. And Sylvie must solve her murder to get her to go away. And to complicate matters even more, the ghost of her husband shows up.
I love a good ghost story and this one is wonderful. Plus, it is a little different than the normal ghost story. It has tons of history and mystery. This makes for a fast paced thriller you do not want to miss. As a matter of fact you could probably read it in one sitting. It is told in two different time periods but the characters are fascinating and you just can’t stop!
I received this novel from the author for a honest review.

“Ginny Fite weaves a fascinating tale of an undiscovered murder, a grieving widow, a mysterious ghost and the history that connects them. A love story and a ghost story, POSSESSION celebrates the courage of women to overcome tragedy and grief.”—K.P. Robbins, The Stonehenge Scrolls
“As we’ve come to expect of keen-eyed author Ginny Fite, Possession is masterful. In a cyclone of peril and malevolence this novel spirals us back to chilling events of the 18th century, then lets the consequences fall on a 21st century mother and son. For a story with compelling characters that is both haunting and heartwarming, Possession delivers the goods. –Lee W. Doty, Tidal Kin
“Ginny Fite strikes again, taking us on a wild ride in Possession—an unusual blend of mystery, feminism, and horror told in dual storylines. I consumed this book in a few sittings, desperate for resolution.” –Leslie M. Rollins, Good-Time Girl
