Review Nothing But Ghosts by Beth Kephart, 2009, 278 pages.
MOTIVATION for READING: I wanted to help be a part of My Friend Amy’s book-buying-campaign, so I bought it. I heard there might be prizes. You can be a part of it, too! Just click on these words ==> My Friend Amy’s Nothing But Ghosts Bookdrive – join the fun. The latest author (Jennie Nash) to make my favorites list had recommended Beth Kephart as one of HER favorite authors. Timing was perfect for me to add this to Amazon order.
I purposefully did not read a THING about it, either! So I was a bit surprised that it really isn’t quite a ghost story. It’s a wonderful gentle story of a young girl dealing with the death of her mother, dealing with her father grieving the death of his wife, and a mystery surrounding a local recluse. Kephart weaves together a touching tale of loss and discovery and love.
I enjoyed this very much: FOUR PIES.

* I can’t find my notes on this book! I have since given the book to my cuz-in-law so I can’t refer back to it. I know I took notes, first sentence, words, thoughts… oh well. How quickly my new goal to include more information falls by the wayside.
