STORY: San Francisco, March 1943
Sarah Bennett harbors two secrets: She sees ghosts, and she’s in love with a spy.
When Sarah takes a job with occult expert Dr. Matthew Geisler, he promises to help her understand the sorrowful spirit that seems to have attached itself to her—a spirit whose incessant weeping only she can hear.
Meanwhile, as Sarah struggles to cope with the relentless weeping, she comes face to face with Zeke, the man who left her six months earlier and is ostensibly convalescing from injuries suffered in an alleged accident. But Zeke has secrets of his own, and Sarah’s love and trust are soon put to the test.
Things take an even darker turn when an attempt is made on Geisler’s life, and Sarah finds herself caught in a struggle between the living and the dead. Unsure who she can trust, she must unlock the mystery of the weeping ghost in order to save Dr. Geisler—and herself—from an unknown enemy.
REVIEW: 1943 – San Francisco
Sarah Bennett sees ghosts and one that has attached itself to her weeps constantly. It began when she heard the verdict of not guilty as pertains to her adoptive father who had committed murder. Sarah started having hallucinations after being pushed off the second story staircase landing at Bennett Hall. Her stepmother had also been pushed and died from the fall. Even though Sarah testified against her father at the trial, he was found not guilty. Sarah’s psychiatrist, Dr. Upton, has prescribed medication for her, but it hasn’t helped. She still hears weeping.
Needing a job, she applies at the Geisler Institute for a secretarial position that also provides room and board. When she finds that a man named Zeke is a patient at the Institute recovering from some severe wounds, she is shocked. She had fallen in love with him some time back but he just left her.
While Sarah thinks she might be going insane with the weeping sounds and the fact that she believes that she can communicate with the dead, Dr. Geisler tells her he believes that she is sane. As she gets to know people staying at the Institute, one woman resident thinks that someone she thought to be dead is now after her. So, Sarah steps in to help find the truth using her special powers.
I enjoyed this second book by the author, but I think readers really need to have read the first book, “The Spirit of Grace” to understand Grace’s past and some of the characters. My review of the first book is here:
