Publisher's Summary

Four contemporary spooky short stories:
Ghost Brother
So what happens after you die? Do you go to heaven, or hell? Or do you go to a special place fashioned just for you based on the life you'd lived in the real world? Based on how you treated people? What you did to them?
And do ghosts exist? Do they roam the earth and plague the living, persuade them to do things they shouldn't do?
Two brothers and their tale follow; their journey through life and death.
Do you believe in ghosts? Some do.
Running with the Train
Sarah has always been lonely. Searching for a love she's begun to believe will never come. Her family and friends depend, need her, but they can't give her what she wants. True, eternal love. Like the wolves have.
So she goes on an adventure of a lifetime to the Grand Canyon; rides the train from Williams to the South Rim and sees these huge wolves running alongside in the evening twilight; scurrying unbelievably below on the Canyon's ledges among the trees. She's told there are no wolves but she hears their haunting cries. No one else sees or hears them. Just her.
Has her loneliness made her crazy?
The Banshee and the Witch
What would you do to live forever, stay young forever? To find true love again?
And if you were a white witch with the magical powers to make it happen...and the secret of how to do it, would you?
So when the banshee comes calling for you one rainy dark night you'll do what you have to do to get what you desire the most. More time.
Too Close to the Edge....
Artist Penelope had been looking forward to going with her husband, sister and brother-in-law to see the Grand Canyon...even though she was terrified of heights and, when she got there, couldn't bear to get too close to the edge. She watched people balancing on one foot, acting foolish, taking photos, oblivious of the death waiting below them. It scared her.
Especially when a woman relates a story of a small child that fell into the Canyon the day before. Over the edge.
Then she sees a young girl go over the rim and no one will believe her.
For there was no child that had died - that day anyway.
Was she seeing things that weren't there, or was there another explanation?

Wonderfully crafted tales!

These stories are far from spooky, what they are is beautifully crafted tales. I loved every moment of the journey. Ms Griffith is a wonderful storyteller who enchants with every word!

The Ghost Brother jumps around and keeps you guessing. It starts of quite jarring but quickly brings you up to speed. There were several different routes it could have taken, such a delightfully twisted tale.

Running With the Train is an all too short story. I would love to see this expanded and find out what happens after the leap!

The Banshee and the Witch is a bittersweet journey through a woman's extended lifetime. Again not spooky but a lovely tale.

Too Close to the Edge, this one was a bit spooky. I was all a tither to see what the outcome would be!

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Wendy Tremont King,who is great. She has a wonderful tone and really suits the stories. She helps weave the tales around you and pull you inside the enchanting words. A perfect pairing of reader and story!

The stories are not really spooky or scary but they had delicious twists and turns. I loved them and found a couple far too short. I can only imagine how great they would be with more detail! I am eager to read more of this gifted storyteller!

Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, ratings and opinions are my own.
