Barbara Winslow’s new book, Kittery Ghost, published by North Country Press, blends history with a fascinating tale involving a young boy, his blended family, the ghost of a Civil War officer, hidden treasures – well, you get the idea. This is a wonderful tale, and I particularly appreciated the way Barbara utilized the very real story of Brigadier General Mark Wentworth, a colonel of the 27th Maine and the 32nd Maine during the Civil War, to fashion this novel that will entertain your kids – and you too!
Barbara, who lives in Norridgewock, has written three children’s books after 36 years of teaching school in South Dakota, Alaska, and Maine. She reports that her three children listened patiently to her stories as they were growing up, and she wrote these books to pass on those stories to her grandchildren.
I can only thank her for sharing this story with me and my grandchildren. It’s a keeper!
