A Ghost Story Told by the Ghost
JUNE 5, 2017 – Rice Paper Press is pleased to announce the official release of Georgia native Robert Spearman’s new novel, Obadiah: A Ghost’s Story. The new novel fits into the historical fiction, Southern gothic, and magical realism genres with a plot that keeps readers guessing as to what will happen next.
The plot of Spearman’s novel takes place in 1905, Hahira, Georgia, where Obadiah Sampson, a carpenter’s assistant dies while helping to build a strange house for one of the town’s wealthiest families, the Stanleys. Two angels bar him from entering heaven and enlist him for an undefined mission. He later assumes his task is to protect the Stanleys from their arch rivals, the Leiber family, a clan who will stop at nothing to reclaim a treasure in gold and diamonds. Obadiah soon meets the Stanleys' eight-year-old daughter, Avie, who has the unique ability to see and talk to the kindhearted ghost, and Obadiah forges a grandfatherly bond with the young girl. After a family tragedy, Obadiah learns his true task is to protect Avie at all costs.
Obadiah: A Ghost’s Story is available online at all major booksellers including Amazon.com in both Kindle, paperback, and hardback versions. Currently, the new novel holds a 4.7 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon, and customers continue to leave high marks and great reviews for Obadiah.
One recent reader said, “I read hundreds of books each year but it is seldom that I read one that makes me laugh out loud several times and then makes me cry at the end. I loved the setting, the characters, and the story. I can't remember when I've enjoyed a book more.”
