The Inevitable Past

This is no ordinary ghost story. The Inevitable Past is profoundly intriguing, a shivery and beautifully written tale that bears the glint of truth.

Praise for The Inevitable Past

Carrie Knowles’ writing has a dream-like quality, as it carries us on a journey from cradle to grave, and back again.

The Inevitable Past reminds us that the outcasts and most marginalized among us deserve to be remembered.

--Landis Wade, author of The Christmas Redemption and host of Charlotte Readers Podcast: Where Authors Give Voice to Their Written Words.

Straight away, from the beginning, I was deep in an unfamiliar world, but it felt true. Carrie Knowles's descriptions of a period of time, of people, their clothes, and their ambitions, carried me through this tender story until, when I finished it, I cried.

--Helen Ling, Australia

Carrie Knowles’ prose reads like music—full of passion and grace, leaving her audience applauding, yelling brava, and begging for an encore. Part ghost story and all heart, this powerful, painful tale will make its readers feel anger, sadness, helplessness, but, ultimately, hope. And it will challenge us to question the profound impact visions and dreams can have on our lives. 


--Padgett Gerler, author of Invisible Girl
