Victorian - Jordan Elizabeth


4.5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Celeste struggles with finding her way from a dark past until she gets a summer volunteer gig at the local historical fair. Enter outrageous actors, dominating psychics, and ghosts stirred by a medium’s presence.

With the help of the psychic’s son, who isn’t at all what her dream date would look like, but rather endearing all the same, Celeste uncovers secrets about the village left hidden among the dilapidated buildings. Searching deeper will mean opening her heart, a part of her she’s locked up tight and been petrified of freeing.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Jordan Elizabeth, formally Jordan Elizabeth Mierek, writes down her nightmares in order to live her dreams. When she’s not creating art or searching for lost history in the woods, she’s updating her blog. Jordan roams Central New York, but she loves to travel.

MY THOUGHTS -
 Woohoo! So far this author is 2 - 0 for me! Another great one. To begin with - I love ghost stories. Especially ones with a lot of "ghostly activity", and this one had it. It was like Jordan was not afraid or intimidated to put ghosts in her book. She met the challenge head on and it was a success!

I have to admit it started out a little slow for me and I wasn't sure where the book was headed. Then about 1/3 of the way in it started getting real good and I couldn't put it down.

The thing is, this wasn't just a ghost story. It was about hurting and recovering, healing. It was so emotional and heartfelt (but then also fun because of the ghosts lol). There were a couple of shockers in here where I actually gasped out loud. I turned to see if my husband had heard me but he was in the bedroom - good thing :-)

This is about two teen girls - Celeste and Weronika. Each girl had a "past", each had been deeply hurt, each needed healing, and each could see ghosts. But, each girl was so very different. They come together in a counseling circle and these two opposites become friends, bond, and help each other.

Another original well written story by this author. Can't wait to read the next!
On May 16th I will be reviewing The Goat Children by this same author.
