Today I'm welcoming David Fitz-Gerald and his book - She Sees Ghosts - The Story of a Woman Who Rescues Lost Souls (Part of the Adirondack Spirit Series) - to my blog as part of the blog tour hosted by The Coffee Pot Book Club (founded by Mary Anne Yarde)
She Sees Ghosts
A blazing fire killed her family and devoured her home. A vengeful demon haunted her. Ghosts of the Revolutionary War needed help that only she could provide. A young woman languished, desperate to survive, and teetered on the edge of sanity.
Mehitable grew up in a freshly tamed town, carved from the primeval forest. Family, friends, and working at the mercantile filled her days and warmed her heart. For Mehitable, life was simple and safe, until tragedy struck. When her family perished in their burning home, she retreated into a world of her own making.
As a young girl, she had seen glimmers, glimpses, and flickers of the spirit world. She closed her eyes. She turned her back. She ignored the apparitions that she never spoke of, desperately hoping they would leave her in peace. She was mistaken.
Grief-stricken, Mehitable withdrew from the human world. Ghosts were everywhere. They became bolder. She could no longer turn her back on the spirit world. Her friends feared for her survival. Nobody understood her. She would have to find her own way.
Fans of TV’s Ghost Whisperer and Long Island Medium will especially love She Sees Ghosts. This historical novel features memorable characters and delivers bone-tingling, spine chilling goosebumps. It stands on its own and it is the next installment in the Adirondack Spirit Series by the award-winning author of Wanders Far―An Unlikely Hero’s Journey. David Fitz-Gerald delivers a historical novel with a bittersweet ending that you won’t see coming.
Would she save the spirits’ souls, or would they save her? Only time would tell.

Can you imagine navigating your way through a world where you can see the dead?
She Sees Ghosts—an intriguing title with an equally intriguing plot. I was utterly captivated as I followed Mehitable’s journey as she bravely attempts to deal with everything life throws at her. There are horrors that Mehitable must face, namely the loss of her entire family in one tragic accident, but surprisingly this is in no way a book full of heartbreak and pain. Yes, at times this book did make me cry, but I also found myself smiling as the plot developed.
Mehitable is an incredibly brave and a very strong woman, considering what life has thrown at her. Thankfully, she does not have to face this journey alone for she has some very loyal friends by her side. Polly and Reuben relationship is lovely, and their friendship with Mehitable was beautiful to behold. It was as if they were one big family, as if Mehitable was a sister to them both. The simplicity of their bond made me smile, as even the simplest things, such as baking pies, demonstrated their closeness, the everydayness of their lives, despite the supernatural element of the story.
The story was entrancing and I found it hard to step away from it, preferring instead to read just one more chapter! David Fitz-Gerald has penned a novel that I found incredibly captivating, entertaining and heart-wrenching, for which I applaud him.
David Fitz-Gerald writes fiction that is grounded in history and soars with the spirits. Dave enjoys getting lost in the settings he imagines and spending time with the characters he creates. Writing historical fiction is like making paintings of the past. He loves to weave fact and fiction together, stirring in action, adventure, romance, and a heavy dose of the supernatural with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. He is an Adirondack 46-er, which means that he has hiked all of the highest peaks in New York State, so it should not be surprising when Dave attempts to glorify hikers as swashbuckling superheroes in his writing. She Sees Ghosts―A Story of a Woman Who Rescues Lost Souls is the next instalment in the Adirondack Spirit Series.
