about this book: This is a long short story about Sara and Jake, two journalist students on their first assignment. They are cynical about finding the ghost a local village is gossiping about, but they have to investigate fully in order to deliver a good project to the university. They soon become involved in a weird experience, taking one of them back into the 17th century. Shaken, they swap notes about what has happened to each of them. Afterwards, they have to run the risk of telling all this to a notably irascible ex editor who runs their course. Something rescued from the ghostly encounter makes him change his tune.

The eventual outcome of this couple's adventure has consequences that they could never have imagined.

The idea for this story came when I imagined standing on the same spot an ancestor not even known to me. Say no more!

Although ghost stories are scary by their nature, this one would be quite suitable for children over ten years old.
