I downloaded this book immediately after reading "Risen" by the same author - and I'm happy to say it was just as good. The characters seem to jump out of the pages and exist in real life. Highly recommend this author!

The Summer We Lost Alice - Jan Strnad

Ethan Opochensky reluctantly has to spend the summer holidays with his cousins in Meddersville. However, he very quickly forms a bond with his cousin Alice and they spend many happy days exploring this little town accompanied by Boo, a true mutt with a huge personality.

Two children have already disappeared when Alice talks Ethan into accompanying her to try to discover why they have vanished. (She's convinced that the woman who runs the old age home is a witch!) and this adventure turns into a nightmare when she too disappears (along with Boo).

It's twenty five years since Alice's disappearance and Flo, Alice's mother contacts Ethan (now a well known medium) to find out if he can "see" why history is repeating itself. On the same evening that she contacts his show, Ethan meets Heather and when she reveals her history, he reluctantly agrees to let her accompany him to Meddersville to help solve the mystery of not only the disappearances twenty five years ago, but why children have suddenly started to vanish again.

I don't want to give too much away because this book gripped me from the first page and didn't let me go until I got to the very last sentence. Jan Strnad has captured the voice of young Ethan as he comes to terms with Alice's disappearance and then again when the story takes up twenty five years later.

This is a book that will hopefully make you question certain beliefs you have about evil, and some soul's destination after death.

This was a really brilliant book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
