Ever since the accident, 98-year-old Aunt Gert could no longer see the world in color. Gert realized that she should be grateful that she could see at all, and of course, she was. Still, she missed the colors of the plants, flowers, sunsets and everything else.
The world was strange in muted black, white, and gray tones. Gert saw faces now, where she hadn't before. Nature faces, tree spirits, and the like. For example, right this moment, under the entry mirror above the table, there were several images seeming to seek her attention. Her twin, Myrtle, informed her that they were not really there, but Gert could accurately sense them.
It was only when their caregiver, Justine-the-Psychic moved in, that the shadow faces and their voices became a reality within the entire household. This entertaining thriller draws the reader swiftly along, as these women uncover the history of their home. (150)
I am participating in Lisa's Book Blurb Friday, from over at Writing in the Buff. It is fun, and you can play too! Pretend that the picture above is the cover of a book. Thank you to Becky Povich for giving us this week's inspiring photo! On the inside jacket, you have 150 words to entice the reader to buy your book. Lisa gives us a week to think about next week's entry (she's gracious like that). Please CLICK HERE to read what everybody else wrote!
