Can "Special" People Lead Normal Lives?
About the book
John and Molly Hart always wanted a normal life together. Born to psychic parents, and with special gifts themselves, they marry and settle down to raise a family. They are not shocked, then, when they begin to suspect that the old house they now call home, at 1225 Gable Road, is haunted. They, and their equally gifted children, quickly adapt and learn to live with the occasional peculiar occurrence in their domestic arrangements.
Events change dramatically, however, following Molly’s birth of twins, and the entire family begins to experience a mounting terror they’ve never either experienced or imagined.
John and Molly, frantically attempting to save their marriage, their children and their home, must uncover the tragic secret behind this new level of terrifying hauntings. Could it be that the key is connected to a past life? Could this be a secret, long-forgotten, but actually hiding in plain sight?
From the book:
The phone rang four times before Pam picked up. “Hello?”
The voice of an older female answered. ”Hello. She’s dead, isn’t she?”
Pam was taken aback for a moment. “Who is this?”
“My daughter Belinda is dead, right?”
“Tell them I’ll be there later in the day. I had to book a last minute flight.”
Pam sat on the old couch in the living room, grateful with relief. “I’m sorry, Mrs. Hart. Belinda was a nice person.”
“Yes, she was a good girl. Thank you for being her friend. She didn’t have very many.”
“Did the police tell you Belinda had ... died?”
Pam heard the woman sigh on the other end. “She’s only been dead a few hours, dear.”
