"The Widow of Saunders Creek" by Tracey Bateman

Corrie and Jerrod were two young people full of life and love until the day Jerrod jumped on someone loaded down with explosives. The life they had planned was not to be and Corrie was alone. But, she needed to feel connected to Jerrod. She couldn't go on without him, so she moved back to his home town, to the home that they would have shared together. Could this move help Corrie move on with her life or would it bring more pain?

Jerrod's death dealt a blow to Corrie that she couldn't snap out of. She turned from the God she loved believing that He had left her. Now, back in the town Jerrod loved, Corrie notices odd things happening - doors slamming, the swing feeling pushed, feeling she wasn't alone in the house. Eli, Jerrod's cousin, is helping renovate the house while trying to help Corrie see that God still loves her. But, Corrie also discovers that some members of the family practice witchcraft. Will Corrie delve into that world? What is causing the strange happenings in the house? Will Jerrod be able to help Corrie discover her happiness again? In this well-written novel, you will find the answers to these questions and many more.

I really enjoyed this novel. Tracey Bateman has turned out another hit, and this one seems to come from events around us today. The characters and situations are realistic, and the story draws you in completely.  I recommend it to readers who love a mysterious love story, and think that book groups will enjoy discussing it. I received my free review copy from the Blogging for Books program for an honest review.
