This is a beautiful book. A young girl is visited throughout her childhood by two companions no one else can see. As Eva moves into adulthood she becomes increasingly wary of their presence. Who are they and what do they want? Are they here to hurt her or help her?
Set against the backdrop of World War 2 this book is filled with so much love and humanity it almost hurts to put it down. I wept as I read the final pages. A haunting, wonderful book

This the story of Eva, orphaned at birth, who comes of age accompanied by two "companions," a woman and a girl who can only be seen by her. Follow Eva's story as she grows up in a small town in Scotland, attends nursing school during WWII, falls in love with a surgeon and eventually marries and has a child.

Eva Moves the Furniture arrived yesterday, and I love the cover (reminds me of the preRaphaelite painting of Ophelia). Goes into the TBR stack, but I can feel it calling me.

Journal Entry 7 by bayouposte from Bossier City, Louisiana USA on Tuesday, April 29, 2003
The novel reads quickly and is enjoyable, but the characters never seemed any more real to me than the ghosts. I like the premise and enjoyed the book, and yet, was not thoroughly engaged and had no difficulty putting it down and leaving it. It didn't resonate with me or touch me in the way it did with others.
