The Women in the Woods by Josie Gingrich

When Ellie accepts a mysterious university scholarship, she doesn’t realize it comes with a huge catch. Ellie discovers her roots in the town are much deeper than she knew, and she must decide if she is going to take on a responsibility she never could have imagined. Listeners will be transported to various locations on Ellie’s journey and see IU’s beautiful campus in a ghostly new light.
