*** THE WINNER IS SARAH! CONGRATULATIONS! WHICH PRIZE WILL YOU CHOOSE? I thank very much everyone who played. I am already reading one of your suggestions, “Ammie, Come Home” and it does fit the bill! I’ll keep an eye out for your, Sue. I do have books by Maggie S. I invite comments from all blog browsers on the stories we’ve told here and for you to contribute your own websites and experiences. I would take pleasure from reading them all. Sincerely, Carolyn. ***
THE HOSTESS’ ANSWERS?
(A) My previous post sadly announced the unexpected passing of my young Love. He is part of a family group, who are dearest in my life. I’ve felt his presence and was comforted. Grief comes from a snipping of physical, Earthly contact together; two decades too early. Well, last month I heard his voice! He doesn’t meow. Love has a distinct voice, a unique sound. Regardless, I turned in an instant to see which of our other cats must be sounding like him. I was tending flowers. No wishful thinking, no ethereal thoughts.
There was no one there. It was a firm, long note, unmistakably his. When I absorbed that, the message came to me: “I’m all right and I’m still here“!
(B) Dalnavert Museum, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Taken this month in 2006. It is the house of Hugh MacDonald, son of Canada’s very first prime minister. Hugh’s son, Jack died there. It was a rooming house a long while, before its resurrection by Manitoba’s heritage society. Click my photo to access the website.
(C) An excellent adult book pertaining to ghosts? Old titles are debunked. I don’t seek horror but modern titles are too ‘cozy’. I love Nancy Atherton, Juliet Blackwell, Annette Blair, Alice Kimberly but gothic mystery comes closest. Books needn’t be spooky but a ghost appearance should be enchanting. The best I recall is “Night Echoes” by Holly Lisle, 2007.
