The Truth Against the World
Olwen Nia Evans, otherwise known as Wyn, has always wanted to go to Wales, but it is different when her great grandmother Gee Gee wants to return to Wales to die. But what happens when Wyn has been having strange dreams about Gee Gee before she left Wales, and starts to doubt that Gee Gee told her everything? Meanwhile, Gareth Lewis encounters the ghost of a girl named Olwen Nia Evans while visiting his great grandfather in Wales. Back home in England, while doing family history, he looks up the ghost girl. The only thing the search pops up is Wyn’s blog, and her uncanny similarity to the ghost isn’t limited just to their name.
As both Wyn and Gareth try to figure out their connection to each other and to the ghost, they dig up old secrets and learn the truth about their families. I like that the story tells us about Welsh culture, from Welsh words and phrases that are dropped into the story and the proverbs at the beginning of every chapter. It may have not been fast paced, but the suspense kept me hooked.
