Starting with a seance, in which a girl speaks in a voice not her own. The game becomes terrifying and too real, and dark forgotten secrets of the past come back to life to claim new victims. Barbara Michaels is one of my favorite authors, and this one is especially scary.
This is absolutely the best, most chilling ghost story I have ever read. I love Barbara Michaels books but this is the best. I don't scare easily when reading but Ammie will have you sleeping with a night light. Not horror story but chilling ghost story.
Ammie, Come Home does not disappoint! It is filled with intrigue, suspense and mystery, Kept me on my toes and my nose in the book! It has a few times of droning on but that soon passes. Much of the book is dialogue. It is a timeless story. A good read!
Michaels tackles a fairly straight-forward ghost story and succeeds. Her writing style is always pleasant and the plot unfolds easily without many side-trips or distractions. Recommended for someone looking for an old-fashioned spooky story.
