Blossom Culp … tells her own story [in Ghosts I Have Been], and she's completely convincing…. She gets involved in strange dramatic situations, becomes famous when her prescience is proven accurate, and takes it all in her stride. Some-how, in this melange of eccentric characters and dramatic, fantastic events, Peck instills in Blossom and her story a sturdy, lively believability.
