The Possession of Lawrence Eugene Davis by E.E. Ottoman

I received this book as an ARC though NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. The Depression era setting was well drawn, and it really made me feel like I was there. I liked how Lawrence's experiences, and injuries from the war played into the story. I think this setting also added to the atmosphere of the story, and the dust, and the war added to the horror of the supernatural elements. I loved the ghost story, and the possession. It was dark, and creepy, and just the sort of story I like. The characters were well drawn, and I was glad it was more a story of attraction than any sort of destined love. I think love is in their future, but it didn't feel forced, or unnatural, and I appreciate that. The ending was well done, and fit this story very nicely. Overall I really enjoyed it.
