Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Miranda Barnes first sees the sleepy town of St. Yvette, Louisiana, with its moss-draped trees, above-ground cemeteries, and her grandfathers creepy historic home, she realizes that life as she knew it is officially over. Almost immediately, there seems to be something cloying at her. Something lonely and sad and . . . very pressing. Even at school and in the group project shes been thrown into, she cant escape it. Whispers when shes alone, shadows when no one is there to make them, and a distant pleading voice that wakes her from sleep. The other members in Mirandas group project, especially handsome Etienne, can see that Miranda is in distress. She is beginning to understand that, like her grandfather before her, she has a special gift of communicating with spirits who still walk the town of St. Yvette. And no matter where she turns, Miranda feels bound by their whispered pleas for help . . . unless she can somehow find a way to bring them peace.

Synopsis:

From the author of" April Fools" comes a haunting, lyrical new novel of paranormal romance about a young woman with a special gift of communicating with the spirits who still walk around a small Louisiana town.
