Ghost Wood Song by Waters
Sawkill Girls meets The Hazel Wood in Erica Water’s lush and eerie debut, called “haunting and alluring” by Kirkus, where the boundary between reality and nightmares is as thin as the veil between the living and the dead.
If I could have a fiddle made of Daddy’s bones, I’d play it. I’d learn all the secrets he kept.
Shady Grove inherited her father’s ability to call ghosts from the grave with his fiddle, but she also knows the fiddle’s tunes bring nothing but trouble and darkness. When her brother is accused of murder, though, she can’t let the dead keep their secrets.
In order to clear his name, she’s going to have to make those ghosts sing.
Long-buried family secrets, fierce bluegrass music, a gorgeously resonant LGBT love triangle, and terrors that will keep you up at night, all make this young adult debut more than just a ghost story—it’s haunting and hopeful and proves the importance of human connection and support in facing everything that haunts us in the dark.
