    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    I couldn't stop listening. Never a dull moment. The accents sounded genuine but easy to listen too.

    Eleanor Druse has always been interested in the paranormal, but her fascination intensifies after she has a near-death experience at Kingdom Hospital while visiting a childhood friend who has just attempted suicide. Eleanor is treated for a mysterious condition at Boston General Hospital in Massachusetts, where she falls under the care of her nemesis, a surgeon named Stegman, who doesn't believe in Eleanor's psychic gifts.

    Overall

    This book is contains interesting characters and promises to deliver thought-provoking concepts and an interesting interweaving of earthly and otherworldly conflicts among the characters. It also promises a suspensful plot and supporting subplots that have the possibility for a brilliant conclusion. Unfortunately, the author does not fulfill these promises. The author fails miserably to resolve any conflict among herself as the narrator and her most interesting "otherworldly" characters and, as a result, fails to bring the story to any satisfying conclusion for the reader. I was extremely disappointed with the author's lame attempt to end the story. The author teases the reader along with suspensful writing but than slaps the reader in the face with a lame ending that provides neither conflict resolution nor any satisfying conclusion for the reader. It's almost as if the author just gave up or was too lazy to put forth the effort to conclude the story in a professional manner. The book fails to provide any payoff for the time the reader has invested. The book appears to be nothing more than a precursor for a future book or a transparent teaser to garner television ratings for "Kingdom Hospital," Stephen King's offspring television series that is loosely based upon this book. Perhaps any conflict resolution may be found in the television series or the author expects people to watch the television series in order to discover the story's true resolution. I paid for a book containing a full story and it appears two-thirds of the story is missing. All in all, I'm sorry I wasted my money.
