I’m first and foremost a lover of ghost stories and Ash Wednesday is one of my all-time favorite books about ghosts and hauntings. I count it alongside The Shining, Ghost Story, Houses Hill and Hell, and a handful of others as truly satisfying.

Ash Wednesday is about a haunted town, Merridale. The dead begin to appear as translucent blue entities all over town. The reactions of the living range from terror to joy and everything in between. This is a quiet ghost story and it satisfies on every level with the care Williamson takes in making his characters – all of them – real. The novel is touching and terrifying and hits all the right notes.
