Happy Halloween! We’ve got one more semi-supernatural Fall 2014 title to give away: Ghost Walls: The Story of a 17th-Century Colonial Homestead.
In 1638, John Lewger made a home—called St. John’s House—in the New World. For nearly eighty years, it was the center of an ambitious English plan to build a new community on American soil. St. John’s witnessed the beginning of struggles that would dominate the next three centuries.
And then everything crumbled. By the mid-1700s, St. John’s had deteriorated, its walls little more than ghosts haunting the historical records. But they weren’t lost. Not entirely.
Award-winning author Sally M. Walker tells the story of how teams of scientists and historians managed to hear the ghostly echoes of St. John’s House and, over the course of decades of painstaking work, made them speak their stories again.
We’ll announce the winner on Friday, November 7, so check the blog then to see if you’ve won!
