Description


Lissa meets trouble head-on when she travels from her home in New Jersey to a lighthouse in Newfoundland for a reunion with her estranged father, Wolf, who is the lighthousekeeper on the tiny island of Baccalieu. As she puts some of the ghosts to rest from her parents' divorce, she encounters the real-life ghost of Alice Baldwin, a girl who died on the island 60 years ago. With the help of her new-found friend Patrick, as well as some assistance from a spirit guide, Lissa sets out to discover more about Alice and what she wants. With clues from the lighthouse log books and Alice's old diary, Lissa learns of a terrible storm that engulfed the island when Alice was there alone. Lissa understands Alice's confusion and anger at feeling abandoned by her father, because she has had to deal with those feelings in her own life. But Alice takes advantage of Lissa's sympathy. Before long, the ghost is trying to run Lissa's life, and she finds herself teetering on the edge of a cliff without knowing how she got there. Can she put Alice to rest before it's too late?
