    This was a compelling and spooky story incorporating historical events and horror of a good ghost story It was cleverly structured back and forth in time which made you want to turn the page and find out what happened next and how Lara got to be where she was Barnsley does a good job making us afraid and sorrowful not only for her tragic heroine but for the millions of people who tragically suffered as well in her time The ending was very provocative giving new meaning to the notion of ghosts being trapped in the world of the living I gave it four stars because I wanted a little but that's just me I do think this novella was very well written

    Beautifully written An amazing work that combines historical fiction and fantasy where every chapter leaves you wanting to read the next one right away It’s the kind of story that makes you dream that all the tales of magic you were told growing up are true

    Vivid and poetic this heart wrenching story explores themes of inequality belonging and identity in withered husk of the American Dream Shannon's prose is beautiful the themes timeless Like the fae of her story her work rends salt tears that burn into the mind of the reader and gaze towards contemporary events under the poignant lens of history

    This author uses her prose to create vivid images in the reader's mind The weaving of myth history horror and social upheaval grabs you The story is dark the meaning ambiguous The ending leaves you pondering Beneath Blair Mountain is well worth the read
