In This House: Bernard and Althea have lived their whole lives in the neighborhood, in the same house and have grown old there. But Deer Run’s lead smelter plant has been buying out the houses around them because of lead contamination fears and now the lots are empty weeds and only their house remains. Their neighbors are gone. They’re alone. Althea’s been sick and Bernard cares for her even as he remembers how lovely she once was, all the friends they once had and all the good times they enjoyed when they were young. He loves her and he’ll never leave her. They’ll never leave their home. But they can’t stop time and they’re only waiting for their lonely daughter, Jenny, to make one last visit so they can say goodbye to her and introduce her to the man they know she’s meant to be with…then they can leave this earth happy.

Good short story
Would you try another book from Kathryn Meyer-Griffith and/or Lesley Ann Fogle?
I would definitely try another book from Kathryn Meyer-Griffin as I enjoyed the way that she wrote. I would not from Lesley Ann Fogle, as I found that Lesley's style didn't suit my taste.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked that is was short and I was able to finish it easily in one sitting. I remained engaged and interested, but didn't have put it down at all. I found myself a little disappointed when it was finished.
What didn’t you like about Lesley Ann Fogle’s performance?
I didn't enjoy the sound of her voice and found she spoke more slowly than I would have liked.
Any additional comments?
I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.

This book is 2 stories in 1 the first one is Don't Look Back Agness by Kathryn Meyer-Griffith it is a ghost story. Twenty years ago Agnes and several of her friends were kidnapped by a madman and taken to the woods to be killed. Agnes was the only one to escape. Shortly after Agnes leaves the small town vowing to never return. Her mother is sick and in a nursing home. Agnes knows she has to return to take care of her Mom. She finds out shortly after arriving teenagers are coming up missing again. Agnes has to decide to stay and help or run away.
The 2nd story is In This House. Bernard and Althea have lived in their house since they married 50 years ago. The developers have come in to clear the area but have let them stay. What neither Bernard or his bride know is they are both dead, but their love lives on.
Both of these stories were good. Don't look back Agnes has a creep factor to but is not too terrifying. In This House is a sweet love story. Both stories are narrated by Lesley Ann Fogle. She done a really good job with both.
