What Readers are Saying about Wadmalaw: A Ghost Story:
“In Wadmalaw, the author Bart Bare captures the true eccentric characters of Charleston, South Carolina, from the living, to the marsh land coastal slave ghosts that go bump in the night. The question of whether the latest couple to occupy this old coastal manor house could last longer that the previous occupants kept me riveted to the very end.” --Glenn Woods, author of Essence: This Child Ghost Wants to Tell You Her Story
“This complex tale told by Bart Bare in Wadmalaw weaves together Civil War and slave history with the folklore of the very real Wadmalaw Island, in South Carolina. Bare’s rousing ghost story is a winner on every level and some of the most beguiling characters never become flesh and blood. ...the story itself commands the reader’s attention as it builds to a satisfying climax. Readers in search of a tale to raise the hackles will not be disappointed.”--ForeWord Reviews
"I wish I could form warm, tight, loving connections with other people in the instantaneous manner that the characters do in this book. Liv, Autis, Sweetie, Bambi, Sandi, Gar... they all immediately are drawn to each other and become tight friends. What I enjoy about it is what an incredibly eclectic bunch they are. From all walks of life and privilege levels, they come together to help solve the mystery of Liv and Autis' ghost filled manor home."-- Idgie from Dew on the Kudzu Blog honoring Southern writers.
