Publication Date: October 29, 2020
Paperback & eBook; 270 Pages
Genre: Historical Fiction
A blazing fire killed her family and devoured her home. A vengeful demon haunted her. Ghosts of the Revolutionary War needed help that only she could provide. A young woman languished, desperate to survive, and teetered on the edge of sanity.
Mehitable grew up in a freshly tamed town, carved from the primeval forest. Family, friends, and working at the mercantile filled her days and warmed her heart. For Mehitable, life was simple and safe, until tragedy struck. When her family perished in their burning home, she retreated into a world of her own making.
As a young girl, she had seen glimmers, glimpses, and flickers of the spirit world. She closed her eyes. She turned her back. She ignored the apparitions that she never spoke of, desperately hoping they would leave her in peace. She was mistaken.
Grief-stricken, Mehitable withdrew from the human world. Ghosts were everywhere. They became bolder. She could no longer turn her back on the spirit world. Her friends feared for her survival. Nobody understood her. She would have to find her own way.
Fans of TV’s Ghost Whisperer and Long Island Medium will especially love She Sees Ghosts. This historical novel features memorable characters and delivers bone-tingling, spine chilling goosebumps. It stands on its own and it is the next installment in the Adirondack Spirit Series by the award-winning author of Wanders Far-An Unlikely Hero’s Journey. David Fitz-Gerald delivers a historical novel with a bittersweet ending that you won’t see coming.
Would she save the spirits’ souls, or would they save her? Only time would tell.

Mehitable Munsch has the ability to see spirits. Growing up in a small town in Vermont, she only saw the spirits intermittently as wisps around people. However, after a tragedy on Mehitable's 16th birthday party and New Year's Eve, the spirits come for Mehitable in force. Mehitable decides to travel with her friend Polly and new husband Reuben to settle in the Adirondack Mountains. The ghost of Anson Smudge, the young man responsible for her family's death, follows Mehitable to her new home and torments her every night. Along with Anson, Mehitable has begun to see the ghosts of the many soldiers who fought throughout the region. Although, it isn't until Mehitable finds an interesting medallion that she finds her purpose with the spirits and her destiny.
She Sees Ghosts is a paranormal historical fiction taking place during the early 1800's as America was being settled and war was not too far in the past. Mehitable's journey showcases the hardships of the time along with the triumphs and tranquility that the era provided. Mehitable's character seemed ahead of her time and I loved that she was able to be her own person and choose a different route than what was expected of her. The paranormal elements weaved in slowly and sensibly as to not overwhelm the story. I did enjoy the stories of the spirits and how Mehitable was able to grow as she helped the spirits pass. The description of the setting of the Adirondack Mountains was enchanting, I have been to many of the areas and liked seeing the unspoiled areas through Mehitable's eyes. I'm glad that Mehitable was able to have a relationship on her own terms; however, I wish they would have gotten to know each other better. I will definitely continue reading in the Adirondack Spirits Series.
David Fitz-Gerald writes fiction that is grounded in history and soars with the spirits. If you’re looking for the atheist activist author by the same name, keep looking—this book is definitely not for you! After a chaotic day as a business person, Dave enjoys getting lost in the settings he imagines and spending time with the characters he creates. Writing historical fiction is like making paintings of the past. He loves to weave fact and fiction together, stirring in action, adventure, romance, and a heavy dose of the supernatural with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. He is an Adirondack 46-er, which means that he has hiked all of the highest peaks in New York State, so it should not be surprising when Dave attempts to glorify hikers as swashbuckling superheroes in his writing. She Sees Ghosts-A Story of a Woman Who Rescues Lost Souls is the next installment in the Adirondack Spirit Series.
