Book Details

A writer looks for inspiration at a lighthouse, where she finds friends among the dead…

Lilly is in her mid-forties, divorced, and with her kids grown, she is a leaf in the wind, trying to figure out what to do next in life. So she sets off for the beach, looking for a nice quiet place to start writing her first book—no cell phone, no TV, just her and her laptop…oh, and one of those low folding chairs so she can dig her toes into the sand. But then she senses someone watching her.

Charlotte has noticed Lilly and can’t wait to get over to her. As a spirit she can move about the lighthouse quickly, but she would rather walk. It makes her feel as though she is still alive. She leans over Lilly’s shoulder to look at the laptop and thinks, I have seen this thing before, once when a young man came, but he did not stay long enough for me to figure out what it was. Lilly reaches up to rub her neck, turns her head, and looks about with a perplexed expression. And when she calls out, “Who’s there?” the answer appears on her laptop: “C-H-A-R-L-O-T-T-E,” setting off a string of adventures between some unlikely friends in Nantucket.
