I read Ghost on Black Mountain in one sitting, as I was instantly pulled into Nellie’s story. Ann Hite has crafted a character, Hobbs, which every reader will despise. The plot does involve the supernatural, as there are lost spirits that haunt the mountain and can be seen by the young Shelly Parker. Through out the book the narration changes several times and is not told chronologically. Each narrator is a woman whose life has been destroyed or altered by Hobbs. I enjoyed reading the book and I recommend it everyone!
*I would like to thank Gallery Books for sending me a copy to review.
