This is a beautiful story about a woman's journey back to wholeness with the aid of ghost who also seeks healing. It kept me reading late at night and brought a few tears.

ABIGAIL'S WINDOW By Susan Lynn Solomon Dragged to a quaint inn on Niagara-on-the-Lake by her friends, Kaitlyn Novacs discovers she can't escape a haunting. Instead enjoying a fun girlfriends weekend, she meets and is captivated by the spirit of Abigail Bender. But as Abigail shows Katy her life and the romance she had with her true love, Katy slips further and further into an abyss as she tries to hide from her own feelings. Will Katy comes to grips with her own past and open herself up to love? Or will death claim her? ABIGAIL'S WINDOW is at once a charming historical love story and a cautionary tale. Kaitlyn has turned her back on love due to an incident in her past hinted at and finally revealed. Love is equated to life here and Katy's inability, or unwillingness, to love just may cost her her life. While I don't necessarily subscribe to that belief, it makes sense for Kaitlyn and her friends. FTC Disclosure – The publisher sent me a copy of this book in the hopes I would review it. I enjoyed the ghostly aspect of the story and came to like wise cracking Kate, although I was put off by her friends and their attitudes at the start of the story. For me the most engaging part of the novel was the historical details surrounding the romance between Abigail and Will. Partially because I live in Western New York, I loved reading about the Underground Railroad and the stops which are quite familiar to me. I also found the Civil War sections compelling, although the amount of detail wasn't truly necessary to further the plot. ABIGAIL'S WINDOW is a captivating story of love and the challenge of both giving and receiving it. FTC Disclosure – The publisher sent me a copy of this book in the hopes I would review it.
