Somebody said 'true love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about, and few have seen. 'I've seen both, and I don't know how to tell you which is worse ...Well, I don't suppose you have to believe in ghosts to know that we are all haunted, all of us, by things we can see and feel and guess at, and many more that we can't. I remember that afternoon as if it happened last week. I remember the light. I remember being side by side in the sand ...with the sun on our backs. In a small town called Dundee on the east coast of Maine, an old woman named Hannah Gray begins the story of a passionate and anguished long-ago summer in Dundee when she met Conary Crocker, the town bad boy and the love of her life. that summer of first love was joyous but also mixed with unspeakable terror. Ghosts haunt places where they have been deeply happy or intensely bitter in life. But this one's place had been disturbed. What happened there? It is a question that tormented Hannah and Conary, and it will keep you guessing until the last, chilling page.

I've read several 5 star reviews of this book so it may have led me to expect more from the book than it actually delivered. Maybe if I hadn't read the reviews I would have enjoyed it more. Still, the book was a quick, easy, entertaining read and I would have no problem recommending it to someone if I know their tastes. I liked the double story line in the book but would have liked more on the lifestyles/culture of the characters.

This novel tells two stories- one in the 1800's and the other in the 1930's. Both stories are told equally well. There is also a ghost story and a mystery and also the story of a wondrous first love. Settle into a cozy armchair and enjoy.
