“Twenty years ago, something very bad happened in this house. But it's over now. I promise.” When Rachel moves to a new house with her mother, she immediately realizes that something isn't quite right. Although she's blind, Rachel can tell that the stories about the house's past don't add up. And slowly, she starts to worry that someone or something from that past might still be around. Soon, Rachel learns the story of the house's previous occupant, a troubled nurse who spent every waking moment caring for a sick old man. The nurse eventually lost her mind, resulting in a series of horrific murders, but have the events of that awful time truly been left behind? Or is something stirring in the night, something that only Rachel seems to notice? The Nurse is the story of a girl who finds herself trapped in a sinister house, and a woman who believes she's being haunted by the ghost of a long-dead child. Contains scenes of violence.
Five Boundless Stars
Rachel is a young girl and living in a house once lived in by a woman named Alice. Alice was a nurse and got into some trouble and is accused of killing a young child by giving the wrong medication. As the story progresses, their stories begin to entwine in such a horrific way. This book was amazing from start to finish. At times I thought I knew what was happening, but it was like No...and threw me for a loop around every corner. This is not just a horror story or a ghost story. It was also a very good psychological story. This characters were well laid out and told a gory, psychological, thrilling tale of the horrors of the mind. By far this has been my favorite book by Amy Cross.
