69:120 Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire

Rose Marshall died in 1952, driven off the road by Bobby Cross, a man who made a deal at the Crossroads.  Instead of just moving on however, Rose became a Road Ghost, one who does what she can to save drivers from accidents on the road when it's possible and help them move on and be at peace when it's not.  She hitchhikes her way all over the country and there are many names for her but all she really wants is to figure out a way to win her freedom, to escape Bobby Cross forever.

This is a collection of Rose's stories through the 60 years she has been wondering the roads.  Some are about people she's saved, some are the ones she shepherded through the layers of the afterlife, and some are her encounters with Bobby Cross.

An interesting take on ghost stories, funny and witty and poignant all at the same time.
