The Ghost (Hardcover) Danielle Steel
Did you ever want to live in a haunted house and discover that person's journals from the 1800's? Read the novel The Ghost by author Danielle Steel. The novel is about an American named Charles Waterston who lived in England until he got divorced from his wife. He decided to go back to the States and start a new life in New York. He doesn't like New York, so he decides to go skiing in Vermont. On his way there, a snowstorm makes him stop. He meets an old widowed lady, who lets him stay at her Bed & Breakfast. As the days go by, the elderly lady lets him rent out her other home in Deerfield. She tells him that Sarah Ferguson use to live there in the 1800's. When he moves in he sees Sarah's ghost, but he thinks it's his mind playing tricks on him. So the next day, he goes see Gladys and she knows that he had seen the ghost and he told her he did. She told him that when she was younger she had seen her ghost too, but has never seen it again. When Gladys son and his wife moved in, her daughter-in-law had seen Sarah's ghost too and decided to move out. This novel also tells the story about how Sarah had come to the states after she left her abusive husband in England. She takes the trip over on a boat that takes two months. Then in time, she meets her next husband Francois de Pelerrin, who is an Englishman, who is adopted by the Indians. This novel is amazing. Danielle Steel did a wonderful job combining two different stories from two different time periods; but in a way, the two stories do have some similarities between each other. I would recommend that whoever likes ghost stories to read this novel. It's a mix between romance and mystery.
