STILLWELL, A haunting in Long Island A Review of a breath taking page turner

Stillwell a haunting in Long Island by Michael Phillip Cash

I finished this book yesterday and have to say, it is one on of the best books I have read in years.

Stillwell is a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through. Its' principal character Paul Russo is struggling with the loss of his wife Allison, who was the center of his world.

He feels alone and unable to deal with the fact he has survived and is now alone to raise their three children.

Paul can not let go of the memory of Allison and can not move forward, but he must, and he has one hell of a means to push him forward.

He is a realtor and has to sell the Stillwell estate which is haunted.

Paul finds that ghosts are very real, which shakes the foundation of his world even more.

Between survivors guilt, dealing with ghosts and a partner who is trying to get Paul to move forward Stillwell compells the reader deeper into a world of complex emotions and a struggle for the soul.

 Michael Phillip Cash, the author of STILLWELL... did a remarkable job of capturing the intense feelings of survivors guilt.

According to his background, he has not experienced a loss of a loved one, yet the depth of pain and desire that Paul Russo goes through, wanting to be with Allison at any cost is so very real, I know I have lived through this.

Michael also keeps you wanting more, turning every page breathlessly waiting for the next shoe to fall.

This is not a Horror story, but it is a very powerful thriller, it draws you deeper into the web of a haunted house and haunted man, each tied to the other and only in the end is the reason revealed.

When I read this, I kept thinking how this would make a great episode of the classic shows THRILLER or TWILIGHT ZONE, because the story has that compelling twists and turns that Borris Karlof and Rod Serling would bring into your living room weekly.

This is Michael Phillip Cash's second book, and it is one well worth reading and sharing. If you like well drawn character stories with romance, mystery, mysticism and hauntings then STILLWELL  a haunting on Long Island is the book for you.

Welcome to a new page I am creating.  This is something I hope to share once a week.

The title of my new page is Healthy, Filling and Fun.  These are home made creations from my kitchen that are Heart Healthy, Fill up the tummy and are Fun to make and eat.  

These will be quick easy Breakfasts, that can be eaten around the clock, wonderous Salads and Simple dinners.

So sit back and be ready to enjoy food that is Healthy,Filling and Fun...

A great breakfast for anytime of the day.

This first one is a breakfast sandwich that I call the 11th Avenue Surprise.  The name comes from when I lived at the 11th Avenue Hotel and Hostel a year ago, because people would share what they had in the fridge and so some very creative things would be created,

You start with 2 slices of 12 Grain Bread, toasted to just a nice crunch texture.

Use Egg Beaters or a similar product egg whites, if Cholesterol is not an issue you can use real eggs, but the egg beaters work just as well.  Cook them in Heart Healthy margarine by Country Crock                  

In a separate frying pan cook up about 8 sliced mushrooms in the same margarine.  Cook until lightly gold in color and not tough.

Next add 2% cheese to the egg beaters and let melt.

Add egg beaters to toast add mushrooms then Tuscan Turkey breasts by   Hillshire Farms

Place on plate on the side add a dollop of low fat cottage cheese and low fat french dressing drizzled on top of the low fat cottage cheese.  

A breakfast that  will fill you up and keep you going til mid day, if not longer.

Egg beaters 2% cheese and Mushrooms on top of 12 Grain Bread  Tuscan Turkey being raised to show the other layers.

Tuscan Turkey on top of the egg beaters 2% cheese and mushrooms, you can see some of the heavenly 12 grain bread.

Last 2, first one shows complete Sandwich with plain fat free cottage cheese.  Last one the Cottage Cheese with the fat free French Dressing having been drizzled on top.

Next week, Well you will have to wait and see.
