Review for Ghost Diaries Case #1- Sarah Beth Hawkins by Willow Cross
Taija Ford stumbled upon a few hat boxes in her father’s attic, inside these hat boxes were journals. Some intact, others crumbling from age. To her surprise, she discovered she comes from a long line of paranormal investigators. Her father David Ford and before him his own father, started this endeavor. Now Taija is on her very first case to discover if in fact is there any truths to life after death. Now Taija will start where her father left off and follow in his footsteps.
In the hat boxes were journals from a young girl named Sarah Beth Hawkins.
From March 18, 1881- May 7, 1881 the Hawkins family would face unusual circumstances. It all started with a beautiful silver box her father bought for Sarah off an unknown down on his luck, disheveled man. For some bread, apples and a bit of cheese, the silver box was Sarah’s but soon she will discover there is a lot more to the box then the beauty of it.
That is where their lives take a turn for the worse.
The following day after receiving the silver box from the unknown man, Sarah started showing signs of sickness. Not only was she faced with sickness, but also plagued with the strangest of dreams someone like her shouldn’t be having. Dreams of a beautiful man.
Every day the presence in the house get worse and worse, evil has entered their house and they now know this, but not Sarah. They hear her talking to herself more and more and laughing.
With the town’s people whispering of Witches and the casting of spells, could this escalate out of control?
Can this family battle the unseen evil and get their daughter back to the young, happy girl she once was before getting the silver box? How can they battle something they cannot see, and where do they start? Or will the evil prevail and overtake the family?
Ghost Diaries Case #1- Sarah Beth Hawkins was a great short read. If you’re looking for something to read, but don’t have the time for a long novel, this is definitely something to consider. It takes you on a journey, has a big of spookiness to it, and has you guessing. It’s very well written and it makes you feel like you are reading someone’s personal diary as well as going through their pain right along with them. I can’t wait to see what is next in the ‘Ghost Diaries’ I give this book 5 stars!
