Eleven –year-old Wendy Wiles is moving from her apartment. The apartment has an exercise room, a pool and even a doorman! What makes this moving thing so bad is that Mrs. Wiles is moving her to a farm in a town that she’s never heard of. Wendy bets they won’t even get cell phone service out there!
There’s no way Wendy can talk her mom out of making this move. Mr. and Mrs. Wiles just had a big fight and Mr. Wiles left for awhile. This forces Mrs. Wiles to find someplace cheaper to live.
Things get both brighter and mysterious on moving day. On the bright side, she meets her new best friend Jennifer. On the mysterious side of things, Jennifer tells Wendy that her house is haunted.
At first, Wendy is hesitant to believe her friend. After all, doesn’t Mom always say that there’s no such thing as ghosts? But Wendy sees two ghostly forms dancing. When she enters her new bedroom she sees a ghostly face in the mirror! What’s next?
To rid her new home of the ghosts Wendy has to do two things. She has to find out who the ghosts are and how they died. Only then can they rest in peace.

Buy -- Then And Later -- Now!
Penny Lockwood Ehrenkranz knows how to write. I don't think I can state it
any plainer than that.
Then And Later, an anthology available at <company/webpage>, is billed as
"a Collection of Fantasy and Science Fiction Stories (with a Touch of
Romance)". Don't you believe it. Ms. Ehrenkranz had only one goal in mind
when she wrote this book; she wanted readers to see Love from every possible
angle and dimension. Lost love, new love, love worth fighting or dying for;
throw away what you think you know about Love, because you've never seen it
before until you've read this book!
Clichés? Not here. Formulaic writing? Try someone else. Ms. Ehrenkranz
didn't use 'copy and paste' to fill this anthology of 11 stories. In fact,
the Lady (and, yes, that's with a capital 'L') could scarcely be bothered to
stay in the Romance genre. Each and every story is told in its own way,
with unique characters.
Iceman reminds one of the myths brought down by oral tradition (it is that
well told). Yet, the Lady also has stories cast as fairy tales, legends of
old, and even "classic" Fantasy. Love in a Different Hue is irreverent
Science Fiction, but it gets downright silly in Crash Landing, yet eerily
realistic in Isolation. Ashley of Ashland and The Watcher (my personal
favorites) hold a favorable glint of "swords and sorcery" without overdoing
it. Meanwhile, Lady in Waiting does triple duty as a medieval/"mistaken
identity" romance with a touch of "bodice ripping". As for the paranormal,
look no further than Drakoni and Déjà vu.
I once believed that I did not like "Romance" stories. Now I know that the
problem isn't with the genre, but with the 'authors' who've flooded the
genre with unoriginal, uninspired work. I have been enlightened.
