Summary

Eighteen-year-old Lucy doesn’t know how she became a ghost, but the more she remembers of her life in Victorian England, the more she wants to forget. Her only hope of changing the mistakes of her past is to enlist the help of a servant named Philip—the one living person who can see her. This impossible romance story is filled with delightful period detail and plenty of mystery.

  

My Review

I haven't read very many ghost stories, but I was curious about The Haunting of Springett Hall after reading the synopsis and knowing it was set in historical England. It definitely had some spooky parts and was overall mysterious as Lucy and Phillip try to figure out what happened to them and what they had to do to fix it. The romance was sweet, swoon-worthy in parts, and grew gradually as the story progressed, which is just how I like it.

There were some believability issues as well as some things that just didn't work for me. Some people were overly oblivious to what was going on and Lucy and Phillip had a lot of free reign when that didn't feel realistic. The historical setting also felt like it needed more depth, although I definitely enjoyed it being set during this time period. If you can take the story as is without worrying about the ifs and hows, then it is definitely enjoyable. 

Overall a mysteriously, spooky tale with ghosts, danger, and some good romance. If you enjoy romantic ghost stories that are lightly spooky then you might want to give this one a try.

Content: Except for some mild violence and mildly horrifying ghosts, this was clean.

  1. As lame as it may sound, the Harry Potter series even though the ghosts at Hogwart's played a minor role. I can't think of any other ones I've read.

    My favorite ghost story that I read recently is Miramont's Ghost, it's very different for a ghost story and has a good historic setting.
