The Custodian Circle of Sorrows

One socially inept man lost in the past and looking for love.

One nameless lady ghost lost in the present and

trapped inside his new home.

until it’s too late.

Will either break the circle of sorrows?

I am also writing the sequel to this little ghost story, which follows Ghost Hunter, Irving Stofferson, as he uncovers how 67a Broughton Road came to be.

The Custodian Circle of Sorrow Reviews

From the moment I saw this cover I have wanted to read it. It isn't overly flashy yet still draws the eye. I wanted to know why this wisp of a girl is looking out the window and who she was waiting for. Five Stars! Middleton doesn't tell you all about his characters all at once. He lets you gt to know each one slowly as if you have made a new friend and are learning about their life as you get to know each other. Each character has a distinct personality that endears them to the reader or annoys the reader. His characters are almost lifelike to the reader. Five stars well earned. Middleton has written a book with a storyline unlike any I have read. The concept of a Custodian overseeing a place is unique and unexpected. I am happy to give these five stars! Middleton's plot is unlike anything I have read. The way he immerses the reader into his characters everyday lives. I honestly did not see the ending coming until I was almost finished reading. His plot leaves you wanting to know more. This book's gripping dialog and characters make you want to keep reading. I found myself saying one more chapter until I was finished. The plot of this book left me guessing right up to the very end. Five stars! I found The Custodian Circle of Sorrows to be very entertaining. When a book has me saying one more page, one more chapter. It is the way a book should be. I will recommend this book to everyone. Five stars well earned! I happily give The Custodian Circle of Sorrows five stars. Middleton has written a memorable book that the reader will never forget. C A Middleton is an author to watch. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next! – Reviewed by award winning author, Shannon Simpson via Amazon
