Moving is never easy, but when Ivy Calhoun must move from the low country of Charleston, South Carolina to the desolate moors of the Scottish countryside, this becomes the understatement of the year. So begins the adventure that Cindy Miles’ first YA novel, “Forevermore,” brings.
What Ivy didn’t count on was the spookiness of seeing her beloved violin suspended mid-air, only to fall straight onto the bed when she goes to reach for it. Or the voice with the thick Scottish accent that commanded her to, “Begone! Leave here at once!” Or the freakishly scary grandmother of her new stepdad who threatens her if she is late to breakfast. The woman may be petite, but she is fierce, with a side of creepy to go with it.
Least of all, she did not expect to meet Logan, a gorgeous, yet elusive ghost who has haunted the castle grounds for almost 200 years. While Logan did tell her to leave and pulled pranks with her stuff, he is not the one who pushed her into the walk-in freezer or tried to choke her one night while she was sleeping. There is another spirit, a much darker one. Lucky for Ivy, Logan has agreed to guard her from the darker spirit.
Who else is haunting this castle?
Cindy Miles has brought readers an amazing debut novel with compelling characters in a magical place. You may think you are not into ghost stories, but this is the book that will change your mind.
