The Extraordinary Life of Amy Winston, Book 1
If you suffer from Spirits, Ghosts, or Demons, Father Duncan will try to help.
Oddly, if the problem is a Demon he has a perfect record thus far in removing them.
Spirits are a different story. He often fails to get them to behave. He cannot force a spirit to go to heaven. If they refuse to enter the light, there is nothing he can do about it.
And that is exactly what he expects to happen when he attempts to help the soldier, Gunter.
If the spirits have a true reason to torment Gunter, it is very unlikely they will stop tormenting him and search for a light.
He has seen it happen often. Instead of going to the light, the spirits remain on earth to abuse and torment someone who has wronged them.
About the Book
For some, Amy is an angel incarnate; for others, she is the child of Satan. In her early years, Amy learns the skills of a soldier and discovers she can heal with the touch of her hand. Upon the death of her beloved Uncle John, he stays as a protective ghost to assist the soldiers in their vigilant efforts to keep her safe. Never has a girl arrived at Madam Cousec’s School for Young Ladies with more charm, more friends, or greater protection. She’ll need them all to survive the head girl and set her future in motion.
Uncle John stroked Amy’s wild red hair, now missing its bow. “Unless my library has suddenly sprouted a lawn and the maids have stopped cleaning it for several years, I must surmise you did not get those stains in here.”
She patted his head in return. “I did not. I snuck through the bushes, so I could watch Gunter yell at the people to leave him alone.”
“The ones that followed him home from the war. They’re mad at him because he enjoyed killing them. So mad, that they follow him about and torment him day and night, giving him no peace whatsoever. Is there some way to make them leave him alone?”
John stroked the face of his amazingly perceptive little niece. He marveled at how she could see to the heart of matters. “Unfortunately, I don’t know of any way to help Gunter.”
“Is there not someone you can hire to shoo the people away?”
“But Amy, the people aren’t real. They are in his mind.”
“They are real. To Gunter they are very real. While you cannot see them, Gunter can. Maybe you could see them, but there’s something blocking your view like the couch. But maybe there are some people who stand by the door and they can see them and shoo them away.”
“Angel, in this situation, they are simply not there.”
Amy sighed heavily. “Well, to Gunter they are, and they are very mean to him. Please can you not find someone who sees them and pay him to chase them away? It does not matter if you won’t be able to tell if they are truly gone. All that matters is that Gunter believes they are gone.”
Out of the mouths of babes! If John hired a spiritualist and Gunter believed him to be authentic, it damn well might convince Gunter to let his guilty conscious go. If it didn’t work, John was out a few coins and Amy would at least know he tried to save the old soldier.
“I will put out a search today,” he promised her.
Amy smiled and kicked her feet happily. “I heard Nelle tell Mrs. Cole about a priest in Salisbury who can shoo spirits.”
A priest…even better.
