A Ghost and His Gold
by Roberta Eaton Cheadle
Eaton cleverly uses the past to hint about the future… and it works very well. I enjoy her ability to paint characters in a realistic light, both positive and negative attributes.
~This Is My Truth Now
Roberta brought to life a one-of-a-kind paranormal story that’s jam-packed rich South African history. I learned a lot of extremely interesting facts about the wars that took place in South Africa in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
~Author, Didi Oviatt
A Ghost and His Gold by Roberta Eaton Cheadle is a haunting historical mystery. I liked the alternating timelines of the story. I felt like I learned a lot about the history of a part of the world that I didn’t really know anything about.
A Ghost and His Gold is a novel about forgiveness and understanding, and the terrible cost of war in terms of human suffering and regret. As I read this I kept on thinking this would make a wonderful film!
My recommendation: 5 stars. Highly recommended.
~M J Mallon YA Author and PoetKyrosmagica
This story deals with war, and what happens in war that changes people forever. How anger can destroy lives and how forgiveness can set you free. I do not normally read paranormal stories, but this one was very well written and I found myself engrossed in this story.

After Tom and Michelle Cleveland move into their recently built, modern townhouse, their housewarming party is disrupted when a drunken game with an Ouija board goes wrong and summonses a sinister poltergeist, Estelle, who died in 1904.
Estelle makes her presence known in a series of terrifying events, culminating in her attacking Tom in his sleep with a knife. But, Estelle isn’t alone. Who are the shadows lurking in the background – one in an old-fashioned slouch hat and the other, a soldier, carrying a rifle?
After discovering their house has been built on the site of one of the original farms in Irene, Michelle becomes convinced that the answer to her horrifying visions lie in the past. She must unravel the stories of the three phantoms’ lives, and the circumstances surrounding their untimely deaths during the Second Anglo Boer War, in order to understand how they are tied together and why they are trapped in the world of ghosts between life and death. As the reasons behind Estelle’s malevolent behaviour towards Tom unfold, Michelle’s marriage comes under severe pressure and both their lives are threatened.
