I've decided to dnf this one for now, though I may come back to it in the future. I've been pickier about the kinds of books I want to read lately and unfortunately I'm really struggling to get into this one. I love the idea of a dual perspective storyline and I thought I was in the mood for this type of historical fiction, but I was wrong.

My main issue is with the writing style. It is overly descriptive and feels very forced to me. I can see how some people might like it, but it didn't allow me to fully connect with the characters. It feels a bit like the author was trying to satisfy a required word count, so every sentence is phrased in an overly complicated way and it comes off feeling stilted and formal.

I can't speak much to the plot because I didn't get far enough for that, but the storyline does have potential. Right now I'm just looking for books that are more immediately engaging.

Thank you to BookishFirst and Tanya E Williams for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Thank you to Bookishfirst for this book.

It was a well written, well researched book with a intriguing cover that definitely fits the book.

Ghosts and spirits are alive in this book that is for sure. Emily has been tasked as a lawyer in her law firm who wants to save the church vs. the church who wants to sell it and wants to build and move to a smaller one after 100+ years in it's existence and the same location. Emily is to archive the churches history in a dank, damp basement. Here she finds wonderful memories starting way back in the 1800s with spirits like Dorothea (the city's former madam), Elizabet, who's diaries Emily finds and starts reading them in between doing her work. Elizabet lived a good 80 years but is still in between stages in life (not wanting to go to the other side) thinking she will find her late husbands spirits still there where they got married. Dorothea is the town's late madam who is the spirit and Elizabet's friend from way back and keeps telling her that her beloved Rupert is on the other side and it's time for her to go. Father Michael, another spirit who died in 1983 who Emily thought was really real until it was pointed out that he was already dead and married her parents. All of them play a wonderful part in Emily's life in spirit of course wanting her to forget her past of her parents death and to live life to the fullest. Emily's parents got married there 10 years ago but never knew? That threw me for a loop and I still cannot understand why she never knew.

Then there was Ryan, her boyfriend of two years, who she loved, but really never wanted anyone to know her grief and not letting go, which she finally did. Ryan was the most patient of men and anyone would want him on their side.

All in all, the church was modernized into a event center and the church also got their way by moving. I loved the ending where they "all" showed up at the opening of the event. ( )
