    Maria Veloso is the author of 9 non-fiction books in the health and wellness genre, a business book (Web Copy That Sells, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Edition), and is also a songwriter based in Beverly Hills, California. Midwinter Turns to Spring is her first novel. She co-wrote all the songs on the Midwinter Turns to Spring music soundtrack.   As Winter draws in here at Hobbit Towers, the lure of the supernatural lingers after Halloween. And so, as a result, I picked up the second book in the Merrily Watkins series by Phil Rickman. (The first book, The Wine of Angels, was reviewed by me here way back in ). The second book continues to build on the premise of the first novel.

      Written in the spirit of "Once More, With Feeling” (the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and “Atomic Shakespeare” (the legendary Taming of the Shrew episode of Moonlighting), comes A Midwinter Night’s Dream, an Original Sinners Victorian Christmas novella/5(55). Midwinter Of The Spirit. In this novel, Merrily is an official exorcist of the diocese, and she has to deal with even more resistance as she is the only woman chosen to study at a Christian deliverance group in the English Midlands.

    Find out when Midwinter of the Spirit is on TV, including Series 1-Episode 1. Episode guide, trailer, review, preview, cast list and where to stream it on demand, on catch up and download. Midwinter of the Spirit is an unsettling supernatural thriller, reminiscent of the Exorcist films. This mini series is not as violent as the Exorcist franchise but it shares the same tense atmosphere inhabited by a creeping, scuttling, increasing intrusive, evil.
