Book Review-The Barrow Woman's Bones: A Ghost Story - J.P. Reedman

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Happy Halloween everyone. I decided a short and spooky novella would be just the thing--so here goes.

Try and imagine that you are on the older side and you live alone. Your house is right near a barrow--which is a graveyard from people long ago. Now this doesn't bother Violet until one night she hears scratching on her window. What she sees is frightening but Violet decides to try and help the old skeleton--she leaves it food outside her door every night. The skeleton keeps coming back.

Violet figures out what the old skeleton wants and does something about it. Does it help? Read this short novel to find out!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

One thundery day in 1909 a Bronze Age burial mound was opened near the sleepy little town of Marlborough. Soon Violet's nights would be disturbed by scratching and tapping. By a horrible, skeletal face pressed to the window.

What did the creature want from a staid old widow? Could Violet ever send this unwanted nightly visitor to eternal rest?

A gentle ghost story based on Wiltshire folkore. Approximately 8000 words
