“You know that feeling you get after watching ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’?
When I finished reading this I had to wipe a tear away, and sighed, ‘That was wonderful.’”
~ Wendy Delmater, Abyss & Apex Magazine
Seven gentle tales of the paranormal with O'Henry-like sensibility, charm and humor
Set in a small Pennsylvania mountain village, where strange and wondrous things happen, Seven from Haven are quirky, fantastical short stories which prove what they say about this town: “Haven takes care of its own.”
"The stories are magical. Grotta teases us with very precise detail and almost journalistic scene setting, then when we're not quite looking carries us gently into a world of soft boundaries, unexplained visitations, and of deep, deep hope and simple courage. These stories speak from and directly to the heart.” - David Zarko
"Cuddle up with a book of friendly ghost stories that will make you think and even smile." ~ Ginny Privitar, The Courier
