Publisher's Summary

In a snug New England fishing village, Charlie St. Cloud tends the lawns and monuments of an ancient cemetery where his younger brother, Sam, is buried. After surviving the car accident that claimed his brother's life, Charlie is graced with an extraordinary gift: He can see, talk to, and even play catch with Sam's spirit. Into this magical world comes Tess Carroll, a captivating woman training for a solo sailing trip around the globe. Fate steers her boat into a treacherous storm that propels her into Charlie's life. Their beautiful and uncommon connection leads to a race against time and a choice between death and life, between the past and the future, between holding on and letting go — and the discovery that miracles can happen if we simply open our hearts.

Narration and sweet story makes for a good read.

First thing I should tell you is that the book and the movie contain certain differences in the details. However, the movie does reflect the soul of the book.

The narrator has a soft almost dreamy kind of a voice which pairs well with this book. The book itself is part philosophy, part theology, and part old-fashioned story. There are no great surprises in the book but there don't need to be. It just isn't that kind of a book.

Overall, I enjoyed this book very much and would definitely read another book by this author.

Charlie St. Cloud is haunting

I really enjoyed this book. It is somewhat different from the movie but it is very good. A person develops strong feelings for the characters and wants to see them arrive at a happy ending somehow. Very Good!!
