In Ghost Ship’s Cry by Dawn Luedecke we find that Laura’s brother’s ship wrecked and he didn’t come back with the rest of the crew that survived. All of Laura’s pleadings to the Lighthouse Keeper Alston to keep looking for her brother has fallen on deaf ears. Her mother comes up with a plan to make Lighthouse Keeper Alston look for Laura’s brother. Does the plan work and is Laura’s brother still alive?
Ghost Ship’s Cry was a fast read and at times it went a little too fast. Don’t get me wrong it has a good plot and the characters are well written. I did, however, feel the need to have a little more romance in this storyline. Being that this is a short story this is to be expected and one hopes to see characters more developed in a novella should the author make more of this storyline. I would have liked to have more time with Wade Alston and Laura in a romantic situation. Also I would have liked to have seen more scenes with them finding Laura’s brother.
Still it’s a great escape for 20 minutes when you are overwhelmed by your day and need a break that is enjoyable. I would not sink this author’s ship as she did not leave us high and dry with this short story.
