An interesting combination of the paranormal, historical fantasy with a dash of romance tossed in. Rose sees shadow people but doesn't know what they are until she is called to the past. There she meets Tess and William and discovers that she has a mission to accomplish. Her incentive, other than keeping bad things from happening, is the chance to get back to the only good thing that has happened in her life, her daughter Anna.
Tess and William teach Rose how to become Ankou and how to control her abilities. There she helps them to destroy evil Morts and move the good ones to the other side. At the end of her time, she has become more than was expected and has a choice to make. Try to go back to her time and find her daughter, or stay where she is and make a new life. The ending is somewhat surprising, but makes the story that much more interesting. I found it a quick read. It pulled me in and kept me there for the entire story.

Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.
The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse. There is a thread in the Come, the Dark forum here discussing the issue and how it is handled within the book. It is mild, happening before the story really begins, and is NOT detailed graphically.
