Publisher: Solstice Publishing Printer: Createspace Emily’s special “gift” told her two things that Halloween night, so long ago. The first was that the story she heard about Ada, the old lady who lived above the old mortuary, being a witch was definitely not true. The second was that the scary story about the mortuary being haunted definitely was true. The old lady was actually quite nice. The ghost, on the other hand, was not nice at all. Now, Emily returns after many years away from her childhood home. She’s a registered nurse and is unexpectedly hired as Ada’s carer. Ada is a complete recluse and at first resists Emily’s gentle intrusion into her life. Yet, gradually, their old friendship, forged so many years before, helps break down Ada’s reticence. Finally, Ada tells Emily the story of her life. It’s a sad story, filled with pain and horrible secrets and, as it unfolds, Emily is forced to make a terrible decision…
