ok, so this woman is pretty ridiculous (in a slightly pathetic kind of way, in my personal opinion) about having these glorious epiphanies and seeing The Light and weeping for joy because of the cascades of warm radiance flowing through her every three pages, BUT the book is a seriously fascinating window into the Mormon church. her relationship with the church is crazy and sad and intense and bizarre and i learned so so much about mormons and mormon culture and the whole weird cult of secrecy and truth from the book. if you can get past her "finding herself spiritually" tangents, it's pretty darned cool.
Nicholas sees ghosts after an accident. His sister is into magic. The woods near his childhood home hide dark and dangerous secrets and something or someone has been pursuing him all of his life. I really enjoyed this truly frightening book set in Australia. I'm a little sorry that spiders continue to get such a bum wrap as evil companions but it was an intriguing take on the Green Man and on what ghosts do all day. The cover was especially effective and all I can say is, don't leave this on your nightstand if the book gives you the creeps! I recommend this for Stephen King fans especially.
