Sylvie Mason’s parents have an unusual occupation—helping “haunted souls” find peace. After receiving a strange phone call one winter’s night, they leave the house and are later murdered in an old church in a horrifying act of violence.
A year later, Sylvie is living in the care of her older sister, who may be to blame for what happened to their parents. Now, the inquisitive teenager pursues the mystery, moving closer to the knowledge of what occurred that night—and to the truth about her family’s past and the secrets that have haunted them for years.
Capturing the vivid eeriness of Stephen King’s works with the compelling quirkiness of John Irving’s beloved novels, Help for the Haunted is that rare story that brings to life a richly imagined and wholly original world.
At last someone took all my favorite Paranormal stories/people and put them into a fictional book! I am sure you would only recognize the people and stories if you are crazy like me but within the first 40 pages I knew 100% the author had “loosely” based these people off of Ed and Loraine Warren! This book kept me guessing and questioning what on earth could be happening and where the author was going to take me next but that is a good thing about this book! Yes, even I got scared reading in bed from time to time. And I loved the teenage girl that this book was told thru. I loved this book and it is a perfect October read! Book Club gals in Oklahoma……. Read it!!!!!!!
