The Widow of Saunders Creek
After her husband is tragically killed in an explosion on a tour of duty, Corrie Saunders moves back to a house that has been in his family for over a hundred years. As if adjusting to small town life isn’t hard enough for this well off city girl, strange things start to happen in her house. Some in this small Ozarks community tell Corrie that the mysteriously slamming doors, broken objects and strange sensations are just her dead husband coming back to be with her and comfort her, others suspect it is something else, sometime much darker and demonic. Will Corrie continue to believe her dead husband is making his presence known or will she come to see these events for what they really are?
This book was not anything like I suspected. I have never read a work of women’s fiction that deals with the subject of evil spirits and demons. Though others have found this book a bit uncomfortable because of that subject matter, I had no problem reading it and thought it was a very interesting story. Of course, this could have something to do with the fact that I enjoy books by authors like Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. I actually really liked that Tracey Bateman was able to create a novel that included romance, suspense and supernatural events. Because of the intriguing story line and the fact that the book is relatively short, I was able to read it very quickly. I’d suggest this to anyone looking for an interesting story.
