A short story inspired by Northern Ireland's famous Cooneen ghost. A tale of family, friends, and fear.... And the unnatural force that threatens to ruin everything.... March 1913: Struggling to make ends meet, widow Bridget Murphy finds life in rural Ireland difficult, raising six children while farming her small acreage. With the help of neighbors and friends, Bridget is able to cope with the many arduous tasks and chores required of her. When an unnatural and terrifying force invades their house, threatening their family, Bridget is surprised to see so many backs turning on her. Fearing for themselves, those she once counted on for help and support will not risk their safety for her. Father Smyth, their priest, is the only one who stands alongside their family in the battle against the uninvited and fearsome poltergeist. But, prayers alone won't run the farm. Will Bridget find a way to save her home and her family before there's nowhere left to turn?

This creepy read was quick and to the point and even though I knew it was short I could not believe what a punch this story packs. I, of course, listened to this while I was home alone one evening and let me tell you, the hair-raising goosebumps were real. The author does an awesome job with the storyline and the buildup and then the narrator comes and puts the bow on it. Don't let the length of this audiobook fool you as it certainly does the same scary job as a full read.

 I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Dianne Ascroft. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
