Publisher's Summary

Allie Kirkland has never been one to take wild risks. But when she's offered a costuming assistant's job on a docudrama in the hills near Moses Lake, she jumps at the chance. She's always dreamed of following in her director-father's footsteps, and the reenactment of the legendary frontier settlement of Wildwood is a first step. The family expectations will have to wait. But in 1861, the real Wildwood held dangerous realities. Town founder Harland Delevan held helpless residents, including young Irish schoolteacher Bonnie Rose, in an iron grip. Mysterious disappearances led to myths and legends still retold in the folk songs of Chinquapin Peaks. Eventually, the entire site was found abandoned. When strange connections surface between Allie and the teacher who disappeared over a century ago, everyone in Wildwood, including Allie's handsome neighbor on the film set, Blake Fulton, seems to be hiding secrets, and Allie doesn't know who she can trust. If she can't find the answers in time, history may repeat itself...with the most unthinkable results.

Christian, but not preachy.

I have loved all of the Moses Lake books. They have great stories and mysteries. Most important, they reflect "normal" faith. I get so sick of Christian fiction where characters are breaking into long-winded Gospel-preaching prayers while they're running for their lives or in the middle of a marriage proposal. Seriously? Lisa Wingate's characters feel like much more normal Christians... forgetting to pray until dire moments when prayer is simple and desperate. Bits of sentences sprinkled about that let you know that faith is definitely an undercurrent, without any efforts at preaching. A renewed understanding by the character at the end of a difficult experience that God is always there, waiting for us to come to Him for help and relationship. Other books leave me cringing and rolling my eyes at the unrealisticness of it. Her books leave me gently convicted of neglecting my relationship with God.

Much more Hollywood than Holiness

This was my first book by Lisa Wingate, and it has not inspired me to read another. Nothing happens, really. The set-up goes on and on and on, and just when you think things are going to start happening, they don't, the action just picks up a little momentum, not much. And the problem is, we pretty much already know what happens since the narrative switches back and forth from the past to the present. In both time periods, the romance is a tease, flitting in and out like a butterfly and never really developing in a satisfying way, especially in the present. And if it wasn't for the modern protagonist's grandmother's cute little sayings, some of which touch upon God, there is no religion in the lives of the characters at all. At all. Hollywood and mysterious directors shine here in glorious worldly detail, but Jesus is nowhere to be seen, and certainly never mentioned. It's weird. And boring. The climax is strictly out of a Hollywood TV show, and totally anticlimactic, not to mention trite. Very unsatisfying.

There were two narrators. The one who narrated the scenes in the past did a lovely, if sometimes maddeningly lethargic, job. The modern narrator was okay but annoyingly sing-song and fast, like the character was always on a caffeine rush even when she was tired.

A Haunting Story that will keep you up all night!

Lisa Wingate weaves a tale of a theatre student hired on a summertime movie set surrounded by mystery and long-felt hauntings of a pre-Civil War gold town. The narrative goes back and forth between the modern day movie set and the mystery of this town, bought by an evil man, where all inhabitants disappeared...gone! Don’t miss this novel, seemingly as preyed upon as the town itself. The story and narration provide an outstanding performance. Very highly recommended!!!

“Page Turner”

This is a great story. I couldn’t stop listening. The two voices help to bring it to life and give the characters lives and personalities. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to more from this author.

Very enjoyable!

This was my first Lisa Wingate book and it won’t be the last. From the very beginning to the very end I enjoyed every part of it. The narrators for both Bonnie Rose and Allie Kirkland were superb and flawlessly executed as was the narrator used for the epilogue at the end. Completely satisfying. Just enough mystery, just enough character development, just enough romance, just enough reference to God, just enough of everything that makes for a really fine story minus any sex scenes, ugly violence or offensive language. Thank you Lisa Wingate for proving that an excellent story can be told without the use of any of these three. Highly recommend!!

Enjoyable till the end

A really disappointing end, was enjoying the book, but it was as if she hasn't thought through the storyline first.
