Yes My Darling Daughter, by Margaret Leroy
What was this? A ghost story, a reincarnation story, a mystery, a thriller? Single mother Grace has a hard time with her 4 year old daughter Sylvie, who is odd, different in many ways, and keeps drawing the same house over and over again, and saying that she misses her sister. Grace's attempts to seek help had a sadly realistic tone, and her struggles financially to raise Sylvie without the help of her father were going somewhere interesting, but then it took a predictable turn. It had chilling moments, but lacked a satisfying and credible resolution.
