When ghosts on the island of Nantucket rise up to defend their homes from a greedy developer, a group of children works tirelessly to help the townspeople understand the dead's wishes. With bright, firm tones and stirring intensity, narrator Alison Edwards dives readily into Balliett's haunting prose. Her compassion and enthusiasm shine in her portrayals of the characters: the brave, determined children; the seasoned islanders; and the narrating ghost who is watching these extraordinary events unfold. Edwards's even pacing and attention to detail help listeners discern past from present and keep them rooted in each moment. Against the rich seaside of Nantucket, Edwards delivers this ghost story grounded in family, redemption, and history, a love letter to a place and way of life told through those who value it most.
