Giveaway & Blog Tour: The Uninvited

Set in a Chicago suburb in 1918, THE UNINVITED is equal parts gothic ghost-story and psychological thriller. It immerses readers in the vibrant, detailed world of a young woman during the influenza pandemic and the Great War.

Twenty-five year old Ivy Rowan rises from her bed after being struck by the flu, only to discover the world has been torn apart in just a few short days. But Ivy’s life-long gift—or curse—remains unchanged; she sees the uninvited ones, ghosts of loved ones who appear to her, unasked, unwelcomed, and always as the harbinger of impending death.

On that October evening in 1918 when she rose from her bed, she sees the spirit of her grandmother, rocking in her mother’s chair. Later that same night, she learns her younger brother and father have killed a German immigrant out of retaliation for the death of Ivy’s older brother Billy, a fallen soldier in the Great War.

Horrified, she leaves home, only to discover the flu epidemic has caused utter panic in her small town home, and the rules governing society have broken down. Confused and untethered from her home and family, Ivy is drawn into this new world of jazz, passion and freedom where people live for the present… because they could be stricken down by war or illness at any moment.

But, as her “uninvited guests” begin to appear more often, Ivy knows one thing for sure: something terrible is coming. What she doesn’t know is how exactly those otherworldly revelations will change everything about not only her life, but the lives of everyone she knows.
