Book Review of :  We Are Shadows: An Irish Ghost Story


"We Are Shadows: An Irish Ghost Story" by Gail Grant Park is a captivating novel perfect for fans of mystery, detective, and suspense stories with a touch of the paranormal and a wee bit of Irish lore woven into the tale's fabric.

Step into the world of Gallagher Investigations and three extraordinary Irish sisters, Moira, Deidre, and Nuala Gallagher, who bring their unique talents to the table. Moira, is a gifted medium, who channels communication with the deceased, while Deidre's expertise lies in the realm of herbal healing. Meanwhile, Nuala explores a world of vibrant dreams that sends them on numerous missions.

Gallagher Investigations is unlike any other detective agency. Harnessing the extraordinary power to communicate with the deceased, Moira, who has communicated with the dead since she was five, and her talented sisters, Nuala and Deirdre, unveil enigmatic secrets. Their mission is to bring serenity to restless spirits seeking redemption for past injustices. Through a captivating combination of ethereal dreams, supernatural encounters, and their unmistakable Irish allure, these remarkable sisters embark on a quest to solve unsolved murders and unravel perplexing mysteries. Solving mysteries becomes much easier when you can talk to the dead.

The three sisters embark on a journey to the United States, exploring a charming small town in Massachusetts. Their purpose? To assist a distant relative, they were connected with through vivid dreams induced by their deceased Grandmother, Nana Brigid. The novel takes readers on a journey through locations in Massachusetts. Along the way, they travel over a quaint New England covered bridge before finally arriving at the dilapidated farmhouse that eerily matches the house seen in the dreams. They are there to help mend broken family relations and search for hidden treasure.

As someone with Irish roots from Mooncoin, Ireland, I was captivated by this novel. It skillfully weaves Irish lore, sayings (like knacker = tired), and blessings throughout the story, adding an enchanting touch to the narrative. The three sisters are beautiful, kind souls who aspire to make a better world for all - making them genuinely delightful characters.    The novel also enlightens readers about poignant Irish history, including the fateful coffin ships that transported impoverished Irish immigrants to America. The ships earned their unsavory moniker from the countless souls lost during the treacherous journey across the ocean. 

Enjoy the supernatural as these three protagonists embark on a thrilling journey to uncover ghostly secrets and confront the age-old battle between good and evil. Armed with their unique powers, these Irish siblings merge the realms of the living and the dead to solve murders and mysteries. Join the exhilarating investigations into the realm of the supernatural with Gail Grant Park's We Are Shadows: An Irish Ghost Story.
