Eleven-year-old Vivien and her parents moved to Camp Breckinridge on the orders of the United States Army. Her father served in the military, and they met other families at the camp. Although her parents warned them not to visit an old abandoned hospital building, curiosity drew Vivien, her sister, and two friends there. Unfortunately, Vivien woke a ghost named Nurse Lucille Armstrong. Nurse Lucille claimed she had a baby with a German prisoner of war, who was killed by the community in a premeditated incident. She also indicated that Vivien was her child and she would do anything to bring them all together, including threatening her family. Vivien’s family was in danger, and no one would believe her. Can she protect her family from this ghost? Find out in The Ghost's Daughter by Cary Herwig.
Do you believe in ghosts? The Ghost's Daughter by Cary Herwig is a suspense-filled novel that held my attention throughout. This novel took me back to the 1950s when society expected women to be seen and not heard. Vivien’s mother was a prime example, given her thoughts on intelligent and independent women. I was also disappointed that she made excuses for abuse, which is still a current issue. However, I am grateful for how far we have come as women. The doctor’s hysteria diagnosis made me laugh because it was the situation in those days when females entered puberty. Vivien was too stubborn for my liking, courting trouble that takes a lifetime to solve. Yet I loved her courage and dedication to her family. Thank you for this short but captivating story, Cary.
