The Time of the Ghosts

413 pages6 hours

Poltergeists and the spirits of drowned girls; malicious presences and portents; cat vampires and roaming bushrangers.

One dinner party at a time, one cup of tea at a time, one excursion at a time, Lil, Mabel, Ann and Kat send the beings back to places they should never have left. This is the women's superhero year.

But each of them has secrets, and three of them face problems only aging can bring.

They never expected werewolves.
