The World Before Us

When Jane Standen is 15, she loses the 5 year old girl she is looking after during a walk through the woods. This event traumatizes her for life. In her adult life, she works in a museum, piecing together the stories that haunt each artifact there. Her daily world is populated by the ghosts of these museum pieces and she becomes focused on solving the mystery of a disappeared young woman, lost near the same woods, but many years ago. It becomes interesting when various characters from the local insane asylum become important characters in the mystery. It is an engaging story, but don’t expect all details to wrap up tidily in the end.
