Read an Excerpt

A faint sound brushed her ear, and she heard a voice whisper death. She glanced around, astonished. A gentle breeze had picked up, rippling the long grass in the meadow. She frowned. There was no one else there except Ira and Maddy, and the only sound was the rustling of the aspen leaves by the creek.

A ghost, an old diary and a single white moth change Asia's world forever.

Asia has lived with Ira and Maddy for as long as she can remember. When Ira becomes hospitalized due to a heart attack, and Harry, their son, arrives and starts bossing everyone around, Asia is quite distraught. The appearance of a ghost at Cold Creek, and then later, in the hometown of her grandmother Beth, causes Asia to puzzle over the possibilities. A fast, easy read that would appeal mostly to girls, I think.

Asia, twelve, loves living on the farm in Cold Creek with Ira and Maddy. But when Ira suddenly has a heart attack, her whole world is turned upside down. Asia also doesn't know what to think about the ghost, Miranda, who lives at the old abandoned farm next door.

Now, though, she'll have to leave the only family she's ever known and move to West Vancouver, to the home of her long-lost grandmother.

In West Vancouver, Asia finds out that she has aunts, uncles, and last but not least, annoying cousins named Sierra and Ben. The cousins, of course, want to spend all of their time with their "new" cousin. But one day, while leaving the library with Sierra, Asia finds herself looking for the diary of an elderly woman named Mary Wintergreen.

Will the diary reveal a connection between Mary Wintergreen and the ghost, Miranda?

What will happen to Ira, who is still in the hospital?

NEVER TO BE TOLD is an outstanding book! This is a great mystery story with lots of twists and turns. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in ghosts or mysteries, because this novel sure does take you on a windy roller-coaster ride!
