Lost Among the Living by Simone St. James

Is there a ghost or is Jo going crazy like her mother? Jo has lost her husband in the war(presumed dead). She takes a job as her aunts paid companion traveling. This ain’t was her aunt from her husbands side. Her aunt then decides she is done traveling and goes home to Wycherley Elm House. Is this place haunted or is Jo going crazy like her mother. There are many twists and turns, angry people and weird happenings. This is a great story. I received N ebook copy of this from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion.For fans of historical fiction and gothic romance, an atmospheric ghost story from the award-winning author of The Haunting of Maddy ClareEngland, 1921. Three years after her husband, Alex, disappeared after being shot down over Germany, Jo Manders still mourns his loss. Working as a paid companion to his wealthy, condescending aunt, Dottie Forsyth, Jo travels to the family estate in the Sussex countryside. But there is much she never knew about her husband’s origins … and all is not well at Wych Elm House. Dottie’s husband is distant, and her son was grievously injured in the war. Footsteps follow Jo down empty halls, and items in her bedroom are eerily rearranged. More unsettling, she learns things about the family that Alex never told her: Dottie had an unstable daughter who killed herself as well as a local man. The neighbors say the family is cursed. Just as Jo begins to question the husband she once knew, a stranger returns to Wych Elm House, claiming to be Alex.
