A powerful, intriguing and a true page turner! - Michelle Forward-Ladd, 7/18/2011
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, the author of TRESPASS most certainly believes in an old fashion Christian sense of the tormented soul who refuses to step into the light. This beautifully crafted story caused me to assess myself and my strengths as a man. The story chronicles the author’s battle with an apparition for the rights to live in his new home. After reading TRESPASS, I asked the author, “why didn’t you just leave” to which he replied, “you can’t quit, Tom; you can’t quit”. This isn’t a sporting event or a court case, this is a haunting. How does one even become to consider battling a ghost for the rights of he and his family to occupy their home? Read TRESPASS and find out. - Thomas Gibbons, the author's cousin
News and Reviews for Morris Avenue Publishing:
I plucked a copy of TRESPASS out of my mailbox this morning at 10:15 a.m. By 1:00 p.m., I had devoured all 140 pages of this well-told, honest examination of the protagonist's encounter with not only a spirit, but his own spirituality. Like any great ghost story, Gibbons relates through the first person the confrontation made with the spirit occupying his home in a completely believable and entrancing manner. I simply couldn't put the book down.
Not your typical ghost story, I found TRESPASS to be a beautifully told reflection on the meaning of God's will in our lives when one feel powerless, angry and afraid. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. - Rick Martin 7/23/2011
I read your book TRESPASS and have been deeply touched by both the gift with which you write, and your courageous journey. I am a devout book lover; from the scent of the woodsy pages, to the magical way words can dance upon the pages, all drawing us into another's' world.
I am Program Director of a women's residential substance abuse treatment center. On a daily basis I rely on my faith to guide me through the darkness of our patients deadly addictions and into the light and hope of recovery. I have felt the "inky black depths of the emptiness that can become their own soul" that you write of (beautifully, by the way).
The challenge you faced with such a pervasive spiritual challenge, has brought me a renewed gratitude and hopeful spirit in dealing with my life work. - Angela, 7/24/2011
