If you don't believe in ghosts and things that go bump in the night, reading
IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE by Wendy Corsi Staub just may change your mind.
Although the events in this novel are fiction, the setting of Lily Dale,
New York is very real. Lily Dale is the largest center in the world for
the religion of spiritualism.
In The Blink of an Eye is the story of Julia Garrity, a medium who was
born and raised in Lily Dale, and Paine Landry and his daughter who came
to Lily Dale from California for a funeral, the second one in three years.
But this is not only their story; it is the story of all the people who
make up the community of Lily Dale.
Staub takes the reader on a winding road of mystery, intrigue, romance
- and ghostly events that could have actually taken place considering
the location of the story - Lily Dale, New York. Staub's style of writing
in the present tense took some getting used to, but the story line makes
for an interesting read.
