For Clara, the nightmares were horrific and always the same, night after night--an old woman was floating, drowning in a room filled with icy-cold, green water. Was it just a recurring bad dream, or a true premonition? Just who was the old woman, and what did the visions of her terrible death portend? Clara wanted answers, but she feared time to find them was fast running out on her. More

Review by: Rose Renee Shelly on Feb. 01, 2011 : star star star star star
Rob Shelsky’s Green Waters is an intriguing tale. Rob has a real talent for paranormal stories, it seems, because this is as good as his others I’ve read, Light On The Moor, and A Confederate Yankee In Annabelle’s Court. However, unlike those, this is not a paranormal romance of any sort, but a true paranormal in its own right. And he does it so well. He paints pictures with words. I could see the old woman floating there in the middle of that room, letting go of her last breath, pleading! Wow! Great stuff!

Green Waters combines a very Twilight Zone style of plot with a touch of Alfred Hitchcock. It has wonderful description, and a plot that keeps you moving forward, and with eerie results at the end.

Green Waters by Rob Shelsky is a great paranormal story. And the way it ended left me feeling satisfied, and yet unsettled at the same time. Perhaps, this is what hell or purgatory might be really like? I wonder. Five stars for Rob Shelsky’s Green Waters. It deserves every one of them!

Review by: George Kempland on Feb. 01, 2011 : star star star star star
Green Waters, by Rob Shelsky, is an exquisite story. I have to say that up front. Rarely have I seen such a finely tooled piece of writing. Mr. Shelsky is a master at description and character building. His plots are straightforward, and yet, at the same time, involved. How he does this, I have no idea, but it works beautifully.

With Green Waters, we have a young woman who has nightmares all the time. She dreams of a drowning old woman, one who is trapped in a room filled with icy green water (hence the title, “Green Waters). So frightened by this constant dream, and not knowing whether it is just a dream or an omen, she reorders her whole life. The result? She saves herself from a horrible fate…or does she? You’ll have to read Rob Shelsky’s Green Waters to find out. I love the ending. It had such symmetry to it!

If you want a paranormal story of the very first order, one that takes historical facts, keeps them accurate, and weaves a marvelous tale around them all, then you’ll love Green Waters by Rob Shelsky. The ending really got me!

This gets a five full stars from me!
