Horror and fear of what waits beyond this life is both a grim comfort and a rich vein of literary gold.
Why not check out The Ghost Garden by Martina Mercer?
James believes in all things supernatural. When her father dies
unexpectedly, she isn't surprised when his ghost shows up, but she still
has no idea how to cope with the pain. With her family in shock, Tinsey
feels it's up to her to fill the void he's left. Her mother is
vulnerable, her brother unreliable, and her own son, Mickey, won't quit
calling for his grandfather. As advertisers and bullying customers begin
circling her bookshop, Tinsey must cling to other-worldly encounters
with her father in their meeting place, the Ghost Garden, and trust his
advice will get her through. Warnings don't prepare her for a sudden
life altering interruption to her fragile world. It will take divine
intervention and a boxing club, for Tinsey to learn how to apply
everything her father has taught her and develop a courageous
determination she never knew she had. In one life changing moment, can
Tinsey conquer every fear she's ever faced and fight to hold her family
together while letting her father go?
