Item description for Essence: This child ghost wants to tell you her story by Glenn Woods...
A ghost story with a difference. Savannah, Georgia, from the first days of the Civil War to the present, is the setting for this tale of a most unusual haunting. Luzette, only eleven years old when a stray bullet ended her lifetime, shares with the reader the account of her deathtime. Confined to the house by forces she struggles to understand, Luzette's spirit is at times a warm and welcoming presence and at others a fearsome specter. The changes to the house in which she died, the evolution of the cultural and social mores of the surrounding society, the people who live out their lives in the old house. Contains historically authentic, but possibly offensive, language.

Excellent, a worthwhile read. Sep 28, 2006
I ordered this book in August. Finished it in two days, I couldn't put it down. Luzette is amazing, her story is one of fear, love, loneliness, fear, courage and hope. I wish sometimes that I would have an encounter like the ones described within. Luzette is now one of my all time favorite characters, and this is without a doubt my favorite book.

Essence is a fascinating story about the ghost of a little girl that haunts a house for centuries. The story takes the reader through many time periods, and provides beautiful examples of human emotion and desire through the introduction of many well developed characters. I could not put this book down, it was extremely entertaining.
An Interesting Read... Aug 17, 2006
The best thing about this story is that I came to care about the main character and it is easy to empathize with her. Using her voice to "speak" to the "writer" or her story was a little cheesy - it did not seem to work well (for me at least). Overall, an interesting read...worthwhile.
Not your typical boo... Jul 4, 2006
I am always open-minded when it comes to ghosts and this story had a definite different spin. I actually looked at the web site prior to reading the book, so I was delighted that the story could be true. The history and lives of the people made it interesting and a good read. I think some of the stories of the families could be novels themselves. I would have enjoyed the book better if it had allowed me to bond with some of the other characters. Worth reading. I appreciate the author's patience and hope of publication, however his editor left a lot to be desired (misspelled words, missing words, etc. causing distraction from the flow of words).

I loved this book and I am an avid reader of ghosts, hauntings, and the macabre. It is most unusual and delightful and I recommend it highly. I was apprehensive at purchasing it because it is classified as a novel, however, there is a website [...] that shows it could be true.
