Review: Ashlyn's Radio - Norah Wilson and Heather Doherty


Wanting a new supernatural novel to devour ? One that includes strange noises and Paranormal objects ?
Review: Ashlyn's Radio - Norah Wilson and Heather Doherty - June 2011
Wanting a good scary novel ? One that in it's own way brings back the world of ghost stories , a world before Vampires, Werewolves and any other supernatural creature took over our literary hemisphere ?
The one thing that stood out more than anything reading Ashlyn's radio was the fact that it was in fact a good scary story , it reminded me of the stories I used to read when I was younger, books in the tradition of Christopher Pike's Remember Me .
We discover that Ashlyn's mother Leslie is in a mental hospital after hearing the evil and not being able to get it out of her system , she fears for her daughter's life as she knows that the evil is after her. Ashlyn goes to live with her grandmother Maudette in a small town called Prescott Junction. Ashlyn on her first night , hears the noises of trains and music - though everyone she talks to is keeping their mouths shut. As it turns out there is a train that comes through , but it isn't a good train , it's a train that collects souls and for Ashlyn she catches a glimpse of her father Patrick on that train. The radio part comes in as a curse past down through the Caverhill women, a radio that can predict the future and bad things that are going to happen. When it latches itself onto Ashlyn , is she to accept the fate of the Caverhill women before her or will she break the curse ?
Tune In to Find out  in Norah Wilson and Heather Doherty's book "Ashlyn's Radio".
