Publisher's Summary

For readers of Lauren Oliver and Alice Sebold, a sophisticated, literary ghost story that reminds us the past is never, ever forgotten.
In a small logging town in northern California, young Emma Rose Finnis was born and died. Now, no one remembers her hardworking life and her grand dreams - but she remembers. She remembers everything. Emma Rose is still here, one hundred years after her death...and she doesn't plan on leaving.
But when a determined hunter arrives with instructions to "clean" Emma Rose out of her haunt, the stately Lambry mansion, death suddenly isn't the worst fate imaginable. Emma Rose refuses to be hounded from the only place she's ever found peace, even if it means waging a war on the living...and the dead.
Lyrical and haunting, this spellbinding American ghost story alternates between Emma Rose's life and afterlife as the past and present become entwined in a compelling tale of loss, love and tenacity over a century in the making.

Beautifully Written and Beautifully Performed!

For me, the performance of the reader will make or break the book. This book captivated me immediately. I loved the unique perspective of the story and the depth of the characters brought to life by Lauren Ezzo's amazing performance.

Literary ghost story

M. Dressler’s modern literary ghost story will give you chills for its beautiful writing as well as pleasure in the plot. The author is expert at titrating the suspense, as one twist after the other keeps the story moving towards its satisfying, and unexpected, ending. Ghostly and human characters pull the reader in. Who knew how sympathetic some ghosts can be.
