Haunted (Salvage Series)

(c) Barbara W. Beacham

The only residents remaining in the small town of Miners Hill are spirits.

According to the tour guide, that is. Tina has spotted a fox’s tail disappearing into an alleyway, several cats stalking animals too small to make out and many, many birds.

What madness made her book this tour? She has no interest in mining. And it’s not like she isn’t haunted enough as it stands. The farther she runs, the more she thinks about what she has left behind. If anything, the memory is growing stronger.

Tina doesn’t expect to find any ghosts here other than those she’s carrying everywhere. She might as well save her severance pay and go home.


The Salvage Series has MFtS to thank for its existence. Took me a while, but I’ve managed to work this week’s photo and first sentence into the story, as well.

I’ve fallen way behind on the comments front again – my apologies. I hope I’ll get round to it within the next couple of days.

    1. Thank you, PJ! I’m glad it works on its own, I don’t want to force anyone to read the entire series to understand what’s going on.

  1. I love the line “Tina doesn’t expect to find any ghosts here other than those she’s carrying everywhere”. That says everything about her state of mind.

  2. You’ve created a really interesting series here, Sonya. 🙂 I feel sorry for poor Tina. I hope she manages to exorcise her ghosts in the near future. Great story.
