Publisher's Summary

Vanessa and Nick are en route to Washington, D.C., to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, but their differences threaten to ruin the weekend before it has a chance to begin.

When an accident further up the tracks leaves their train temporarily stranded in Harpers Ferry National Park, a chance meeting with the town's most iconic resident offers insight into a bit of local history.

Will a poignant message from the past help put the newlyweds' future on less shaky ground, or are they doomed to disaster?

not really a ghost story

the story is more about a young married couple arguing over his video game playing. There is a ghost story included. Nothing scary.

Screaming Jenny

This is a local legend into a fictional short story. The descriptions on the story put me on the scene on the train, at the station, and envisioning Jenny in her shack by the tracks, and other scenes

This was a very short but interesting ghost story. I liked the premise and thought it was well written and narrated. If you want something short and entertaining, this is worth checking out.

A nice short ghost tale...

It's a nice short ghost tale, the kind kids like to share at campfires... The basic story, Jenny's, is woven into a wider frame of Vanessa and Nick's, and the narration flows smoothly from one to the other. As it is a really short tale, there's not much room for character development or detailed descriptions of people and places, but there are enough facts and pieces of information to create a clear picture in your mind. Also, it's not the scariest of ghost stories you can find, but it evokes empathy and sympathy for all the characters. And, as the author explains, it is based on a real local legend, so it has that feel of authenticity to it I like.

As for the narration by Ms Gilmour, it's really good; the pace is right, the voicing of individual characters very well done, with a bit of acting added to the pot in just the right places.

Generally, it's a nice quick listen that will give you a small respite in between household chores:)

A Good Old-Fashioned Ghost Story

A young couple's chance meeting during an emergency train lay-over changes their relationship for the better.
This one's a classic urban legend type story about a ghost who repeatedly returns to the scene of her death, but it's the surprise ending that makes it absolutely charming.
Short, sweet and perfect for a Halloween thrill.

Great Quick Read

Favorite Coffee Series (The Marshall Family Saga) was a great read by Victoria Pinder. This series consisted of Favorite Coffee, Favorite Crush; Favorite Coffee, Favorite Mistake; Favorite Coffee, Favorite Sin and Favorite Coffee, Favorite Scandal. I loved following these four couples at finding love. I can't wait to read more by Victoria Pinder.

A Spooky little tale.

Screaming Jenny was a nice short story about a couple coming to terms with the possibility of a failing relationship. There are brought together by a tragic tale of misfortune and misery, and a common interest in the ghost tales of nice old lady. The story was a little creepy but it was mostly about the couple and their relationship.

The narration was done very well. The characters came to life and you felt for the characters in the story within the story.

I requested a free review copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review.

Perfect Halloween Story!

I associate author Becky Muth with romance, and there were elements of a love story here, but the truly Dickensian tale is of Jenny--and her kith and kin. If you've been to Harper's Ferry, you know it rises steeply from the waterfront, which consists of the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. Civil War scholars know of John Brown's raid, and the railroad bridge now provides a lovely, scenic walk, especially when fall foliage is on display and you can view three states in brilliant color. With much of its original fabric intact, the town is the perfect backdrop to our story, which is short, spooky, and perfectly read and acted by narrator Jennifer Gilmour.
