Twelve-year-old Dahlia has always lived at Silverton Manor-having spent fifty years as its resident ghost. When Oliver Day and his family show up as house-sitters the day Mrs. Tibbs, a Liberator sent by the Spectral Investigative Council, arrives to teach Dahlia the proper rules for ghosting, Dahlia can't wait to make new friends. But the unscrupulous ghost hunter, Rank Wiley, and the crooked town councilman, Jock Rutabartle, plan to rid Silverton Manor of its ghosts and sell it to the highest bidder. With her home and friendships at stake Dahlia may have to break the rules of ghosting as quickly as she learns them to solve the mystery of her death and save the manor. Equal parts charming and eerie, this ghostly caper hits all the right notes for the middle-grade audience.
The Bible records God as saying that He was sorry He had made humans, and that He regretted He made Saul king. Did God make a mistake? Did things turn out different than He thought they would? Can God get things wrong? What about at the tower of Babel, why did God say, "Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another's speech." Was God worried about the humans? Why did He say about humans, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them." Was God worried that humans may do something that would interfere with his plans? And, what about Lucifer? Did God not know that he would sin? Did God make a mistake and accidentally create Satan? What about Adam and Eve? Did God know they would eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? And, where did the serpent who fooled Eve come from? Did God know that it was around? Did God put it there knowing what it was going to do, or was God surprised at the results? I wanted the answers. I wanted to know if these were accidents, mistakes, errors, or were they done on purpose? If they were done on purpose, why would God do all these things He did? God does not make mistakes, so what does all of the above mean, and where is the proof that God does not make mistakes?
