Fromwe Gradually Find Outgradually find out will give her a fresh start away fromwe gradually find out whatHowever job is not at all what she expectedOverall a bizarre and original tale that is both creepy and funny psychological and deep while dealing with very Der Bilderwächter real issues that can plague the human soul It certainly kept my interest throughoutI love the writing style of this author despite the typos and look forward to Really enjoyed this book I didn t know it was a series when I first got it think it may have been a free promo but glad I found it It doesn t hurry along the pace is fairly sedate but it sucks you into the story Very atmospheric I m going to get the next in the series for sure I ended up liking this book way than I thought I would The first in a trilogy Sam takes a job as a Gardner of the town cemetery a job that entails than it would seem Monsters zombies angels and the devil Some standard tropes that actually work along with interesting characters some deeper than others a pretty fast paced book with the standard Cross horror stylings This is the first book in a trilogy The town of Rappon cannot keep aegular gardener for the cemetery Some disappear and some of them uit Mayor Winters is desperate to find somebody to fill that position Winters hires Sam Marker for the position Little did Winters know that Sam was eally Samantha Once Winters found out that Sam was a young lady he tired to discourage her from taking the job The mayor showed Sam her living uarters It is a small cottage that is located within the cemetery When Sam saw the cottage it looked like no one had lived there in years Sam is a non believer of ghosts and ghouls The mayor comes to tell Sam that he has a job for her He said that Mrs Mayberry was found dead in her bedroom and a grave has to be dug The town of Rappon has no fancy euipment to dig this grave with So Sam will have to dig the six foot deep grave.
