Treat yourself to to this book. It's a ghost story that well defines the genre.
This book was sincerely, "un-put-down-able". I was pulled into the story and didn't want to leave. The characters were rich and vibrant, even those who were more than a hundred years old. The storytelling was full in it's detail - and when necessary - just as strong in its withholding. There were times I felt precariously dangled from a cliff and other times I felt snuggled up warmly with the comfort of canine sentinels. As a Michigan resident, I felt quite at home with Halcyon and her family's house. I have a very strong urge now, to visit the island to seek out the places... emotional and physical, real and imagined.
I listened to the audio book version. The narrator was exquisite in captivating story, character, and the intent of the author. Her cadence and rhythm were spot on... the only error I found was the single mispronunciation of 'Mackinac' (she's probably not a Michigan native).
