The Extra Large Medium: Helen Slavin

Annie Colville has been talking to the dead since she was a little girl. She can't block them out, but tries to lead her life with as little interference from them as possible. Then one day her husband disappears and doesn't come back, either in person or as a ghost. And so begins a seven-year waiting game, with characters ducking in and out of Annie's present and past.

This is a great, quick read that has stayed in my thoughts all week. It's only a tiny bit spooky, and the author does a beautiful job introducing a wide variety of present-day and historical characters.

  • This sounds snappy and right up my alley now. I just joined my new public library so I'm all set.
