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.

Outstanding Performance, Unique Tale

I was hooked from the start. Lauren Ezzo performs this beautifully written, unique tale with captivating nuance. Ezzo is a masterful story teller, blending the art of pause, silence and characterisation that is superb. Masterfully written, M. Dressler honors the intellect of the reader and listener. This may be the best audiobook I've had the pleasure to listen to in the past several years. A real pleasure, a work of art, this is a must for every library.

In Love with this story

This story swallowed me up. I could not stop listening. I heard the author talk about this book on NPR and just had to listen.
