Book Two of Ellie’s Story—part bittersweet fable, part ghostly adventure, part historical romp, Ellie’s Story will remind you that it’s never too late to sing your song.

Two years have passed since Ellie and Neil’s intense past life experience on the fields of Antietam. Neil has launched a successful consulting business and the friends have moved on to coupledom. Ellie, however, isn’t exactly happy. She’s gotten herself tucked up under Neil’s protective wing where there’s no encouragement to challenge herself and very little air. Although she’s frustrated in her dual role as Neil’s lover and bookkeeper, she somehow can’t raise the will to step free of his shadow and get on track as a novelist.

When a chance encounter leads Ellie and Neil to Gettysburg for a two-week workshop, Ellie assumes she’s just along for the ride. Her assumptions, however, are swept away by a graphic vision of the battlefield burning out of control. As Neil makes new friends and is challenged to expand beyond his own limited vision, Ellie is drawn into the heat of battle by ghostly soldiers, each with a story to tell and a burning desire to be remembered. But what tale does Ellie need to remember from her own life during the American Civil War?

Unexpectedly pulled from Neil’s side, she’s abruptly put on track to find out when she’s plunged into a world of contrasting energies—both terrifying and healing—that conspire to push her past a psychic block come to life as a hairy, roaring man with a sardonic tongue and beautiful golden eyes.


Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
