Reincarnated, or just delusional?

Synopsis: A young female educational psychologist in the Pacific Northwest in 1925 travels to small one-room schools, evaluating students to determine whether they would benefit from advanced schooling in cases of high aptitude, or from targeted schooling to offset learning issues. Then she encounters a troubled young girl who claims to have lived a previous life.

I thought this book had a lot of promise, but I ended up being rather disappointed with it; the period details are interesting, but it's a pretty standard horror plot. The author does a good job of painting a written picture of the era and its ethos. Be aware that this is a horror story about very damaged people. Trigger warning for some physical and emotional abuse.
