The Ghosts of Varner Creek Kindle Edition

169 p 4.4/5 785 rev
At 87, Solomon "Sol" Mayfield is taken on an otherworldly journey to discover what really happened to his family. Sol has been able to see ghosts ever since his mother and sister mysteriously disappeared when he was a child. When he dies in a nursing home in the second chapter of the novel, it's only the beginning of his story. He's reunited with his sister, Sarah, who reveals family secrets he was never able to learn while he was alive. The novel flashes back to 1909, when Sol was 12 and Sarah was 13. The day after Sarah's birthday, Sol wakes up to find that his mother and sister are gone. Many in their small town of Varner Creek, Texas, assume that Sol's mother, Annie, had finally had enough of his abusive father, Abram; others suspect foul play. Abram blamed Annie for Sarah's Down syndrome and for trapping him in a small town by becoming pregnant at 14. Sent to live with his Aunt Emma and Uncle Colby, Sol is visited one night by what appears to be Sarah's ghost. Is his sister dead? If so, who killed her? And what about their mother? Sol sets out to find the answers, some of which are not revealed until decades later. Weems' story unfurls slowly, at a pace that feels consistent with life in a small Texas town. He has an impressive knack for dialect, and regional accents and idioms help bring the characters into vivid relief. Also, Sol's self-deprecation and world-weary charm make him an instantly likable narrator. While it's easy to get pulled into his story, the narrative sags a bit in the middle when the reader is given a thorough history of how Sol's parents met, which doesn't feel entirely necessary to the main story. When the final mystery is unveiled, however, the solution is sufficiently unexpected if not completely shocking.
Author note: Not a horror story or thriller. This is a paranormal mystery in the old South. Recommended 18+ for adult themes and content.

This Side of Paradise - Special Edition (Includes Norman Rockwell illustrations + Audio Links) Kindle Edition
"It was always the becoming he dreamed of, never the being."
First published in 1920, F. Scott Fitzgerald's debut novel 'This Side of Paradise' was a sizzling sensation that put the young American author on the map. Its initial printing of 3,000 copies sold out in three days.
The novel's hero is Amory Blaine, a handsome, wealthy, spoiled and snobbish young man from the Mid West who attends Princeton University where he searches in vain for meaning in the dissolute lives of the young rich elite. Lacking all sense of purpose, he begins a series of flirtations that culminate in a genuine but ill-fated love for a young woman who rejects him to marry a wealthier man. During the war, Amory serves as an officer in France, and upon his return home he embarks upon a career in advertising, world-weary, cynical, regretful, and not yet thirty years old ...
Virtually a record of the 'Lost Generation' in its college days, the novel treats Fitzgerald's characteristic theme of true love blighted by money lust and is remarkable for its honest and detailed descriptions of the early Jazz Age.
