OHH! your in for a surprise!

OMG! i thought this would be your typical ghost story and while that's ok, it's soooo not that. The audio book is just 1 hour long but Amanda Lyons uses that time wisely and weaves one hell of a story. Once things start coming together, i was so surprised. There's some bending of folklore here but i was ok with that. These kinds of stories are my favorite kind.
Andrew Reyes narrates it and he did a great job. Well done Amanda Lyons and Andrew Reyes!


I requested a copy of the audio book from the author in exchange for a honest review

Wendy Won't Go

The tragedy of a young wife and mother's death continues to haunt Billy and his daughter, Sara. When Billy's wife, Wendy, dies in childbirth, his world is torn apart. That would be bad enough, but Wendy just won't leave! She continues to haunt Billy and hurt their daughter.

I enjoyed this short read and found it to be very haunting, compelling and heartbreaking. The narrator, Andrew Reyes, does a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of the book. This is more than a typical ghost story and should appeal to many types of readers.

I received the audiobook version of this book from the author and chose to review it.

So original

In this day where books are so similar and you can you tell one or does book from another, finally I can. This book is original her Burbage is original the storyline is original. Yes it is a father and daughter in trauma after the death of the mother and all that would come with it, But the plot of the book is one I have never ever heard and thought it was executed so well I really liked it and I am looking forward to reading her short story collection now that I know she is so good. The narrator was great I thought he did a wonderful job that is why I gave Wendy won’t go five stars across-the-board. It deserves each one of them.

A haunting reminder of a life lost

Wendy Won't Go is a haunting book that talks about the dynamics of a family dealing with the supernatural and grief. I wanted to cry and scream at the same time because it was hard for me to understand how a spirit could do this to a child. I didn't understand this book until the end which made me reach back into my native lore and then I understood.
This book is fast paced and well written with strong descriptive words. I loved how the author developed the characters of Sara and Billy. I loved how the author ended the story. This book is a must read and if you get lost just listen because the story may jump a little bit you will understand the main concept. I received this book per my request and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review because I really enjoyed reading this book.

Interesting Symbolism

Death is a hard thing for anyone to deal with, especially a tragic death. After Wendy died during childbirth, her husband and daughter are haunted by a ghostly image of her. One that leaves them covered in marks and bruises.

My favorite part about this book was the symbolism. When someone dies, especially a new mother, that death can affect the relationship of the husband to the child for years to come.

This is definitely a different sort of story, but it’s worth a listen.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
