Book #9 of 2012

From Goodreads.com:

Bringing his family home to Little Valley, Wisconsin, Allen Young thought that this move was the chance for a new beginning, a new job, a new town, a breath of fresh air. Little did he know that the very home he had lived in as a child held more than the memories of his father and grandfather. It held their very souls.Built by loving hands a replica of Little Valley sat in a room on the second floor of Allen’s new home. With loving care every tree, every building, every street was placed on the model. And, day by day, whatever happened in town showed itself in miniature detail before Allen’s eyes.Then one by one his children vanish within the house. Their soul’s caught in the battle between the living and the dead, a battle of those wanting to be brought home to an eternal rest, and a soul wanting them to stay locked in an eternal embrace.

My take:

4 out of 5 stars for this one. I downloaded this on my Kindle for free. I always check the daily listing of what's free for that day, and this one was listed there. For being a short book, only a couple of hundred pages, this was a good story. Reminded me of early Stephen King. I would be interested in reading more by this author.
