Aunt Betty looked every bit as old as the hotel in Hope. Her voice was like the fog drifting on the lake in early morning. “You may see a ghost or two while you are in Hope. They return for many different reasons.” She closed her eyes for a moment. “Some spirits come back to tell loved ones something they failed to tell them when they were alive. Others come back to right a wrong done years ago. But most come back because they are simply lonely.”
She opened her eyes, those deep, dark green eyes that never looked directly at me. “They were lonely in life and now they are lonely in death. They wander between the two worlds looking for someone or something. They did not choose this fate, just as you do not choose what awaits you in Hope.”
Midnight In Hope is the fourth ghost story by the author. The sage takes place in the small town of Hope in North Idaho. Like his other ghost stories this one contains a love story as well as a ghost. Take a trip with the author to Hope on the night of the harvest moon for an adventure.
