N.A. Turbe has lived in and around New York City for most of her life. The inspiration for Lost Souls of Spring Street sprang from childhood stories told around the kitchen table, and her from own life as a technologist in Manhattan.
Descripción del libro
A terrifying visit from a spirit launches a young New Yorker’s quest to solve a family mystery. Aided by a reluctant psychic and cutting-edge technology, she goes ghost hunting, and, in the process, discovers her own gift.

Updated (2) Sept 12é
Please note dress style for Julia (Lady in white) is limited- best options will look like latest file upload- 1790’s walking dress. Simple line, Tight long sleeves, elevated waist- skirt not full. Lots of models in white wedding dresses i guess, are available from stock.
Updated- Sept 12. Characters facing front, or in profile , is an option.
As of Sept 11: The book draws on historical sources, notably Jacob Riis, and his photos of NYC are good inspiration (see How the other Half Lives, also original cover of Caleb Carr’s The Alienist) That said, the story is grounded in modern day Manhattan, so the old must be juxtaposed with modern NYC architecture- maybe street scene where near is “old”, and tall/modern NYC are “far”. Maybe we see the backs of the figures walking side by side : Anna (modern, dressed in black pants and black top/tee (not dress), red hair, NOT goth, no tatoos) walking alongside Julia’s ghost (died as a young woman in 1800 NYC, dressed in white simple gown of the time) and maybe the character of Joe as a young boy (late 1800s young boy -“ragamuffin” / shabby - see upload -snaps from Jacob Riis’ book.) He is also a ghost- but his figure is well defined.
