Book "Shades of Souls Passed" by Teresa Andrews

About the Book: Turn out the lights, light a candle or two, and get ready for a spine tingling journey into the unseen spaces, the spaces where The Souls of Shades Passed reside. Read the true ghost stories of nine different people from Madison County, New York whose lives were unexpectedly interrupted and forever altered by a chance meeting with the inexplicable.

About the Author: Teresa Andrews is a writer, photographer, and mother of four. She is the author of Shades of Souls Passed and is currently working on her first full-length murder mystery. She divides her time between Cazenovia, New York and St. Pete Beach, Florida.

My Review: This is a very well written book. It is a  nice collection of nine short stories from Teresa Andrews. She writes what 9 different people living in Madison County, NY told her on their experiences with the supernatural, in a conversational manner.
The stories flow with such a grace that it appears as if we were there with the character, living the moment, suffering all the fear with them. Some of the stories you will read at the edge of your chair. As being a short book (less than 100 pages), you can read in one seating. I was hooked from the first story and it took me about 4 hours to read the whole book.
Excellent entertainment, I recommend this book to the permanent library of all readers who love short stories with a good terror/ghost contents, without any unnecessary embellishment. After all, "truth can be stranger than fiction"! My favorit stories were "Dark Night of the Soul" and "Winter Storm".
At the beginning of each chapter there are illustrations by Jacqueline Andrews. The front cover picture was well chosen and is very much appropriate!
This book was written by Teresa Andrews, illustrated by Jacqueline Andrews and it was published in December of 2010. I received a complimentary electronic version of this book for reviewing and I was not requested to provide a positive review. Opinions expressed here are my own.
