My kids and I recently watched a new movie called Passage to Zarahemla based on the novel by Chris Heimerdinger. Oh, boy! What a great movie. All of us highly recommend it. It's a story about a young woman and her brother (Kerra and Brock) who have been recently orphaned. The State wants to split them up, but they're not going to have any of that, I tell you what! Instead, they take off to some relatives they haven't seen in nearly twelve years who live in the little town of Leeds, Utah. Near their cousins' home is an area that's always been believed to have supernatural powers associated with it. Strange noises and flickering shadows in the brush have given the area a reputation for being "haunted". I don't want to give much more away but I will say that the folks Kerra finds when she goes into the woods are anything but ghosts! Although some of them are pretty unfriendly. I highly recommend this movie. It was great to watch, and had a very sweet ending!
