This is one of my favorite ghost stories. Made the hair on the back of my neck stand right up. ( )

The writing is different and when I first started it I didn't get into it. I set it aside and tried again later. I'm so glad I did!
It's a fast read and a very well written story.
Two stories based in Maine that involve a ghost and first love. ( )

No clue where I heard about this one but I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of two romances, 100 years apart. Each young love story one goes wrong in very different way. a perfect quick, easy engrossing read. ( )

In the coastal town of Dundee, Maine, an elderly lady begins telling her story: "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." Although her children cannot understand why she insists on traveling back to Dundee, Maine every winter, Hannah Gray nevertheless finds herself drawn back to the place where her heart has always been. So, as she reaches the twilight of her life, Hannah decides, finally, to leave a record of the long-ago Dundee summer when she first met Conary Crocker.

Although the tale that she recounts is definitely not one which she wishes to tell in darkness, Hannah feels infinitely better telling such a story in the town of Dundee - the town where so many of her memories of Con Crocker remain. Con Crocker is the local 'bad boy' of Dundee, and he quickly becomes the love of young Hannah's life. Her story tells of the passionate and anguished summer when Conary's fate and her own became intertwined for all time.

Hannah and Conary's anguished teenage love story intersects with another intense love story - the love story of Claris Osgood and Danial Haskell. As a matter of fact, this spare, piercing, and unforgettable novel spans two centuries, as Hannah's and Conary's fates become intertwined with the story of a complicated, yet undying romance - that of Danial and Claris - and interwoven with the tale of a marriage that took place in Dundee a hundred years earlier.

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Although I initially found the time jumps between eras somewhat confusing, I was soon caught up in the plot and ensnared by both stories. The stories may have been separated by centuries, but each one resonated with the other fairly perfectly.

I appreciated how each separate love story ran parallel to each other, yet complemented each other so well. I also thought that the addition of the ghost in Hannah's story enhanced the level of eeriness of her story; there was a subtle increase to the tension within the story, and I appreciated that the creepiness wasn't necessarily always 'in your face' shocking. I will definitely be putting Beth Gutcheon's name at the top of my wish list, and give this book an A+! ( )

Again, a story of ghosts and their interaction with the living in a small New England town. The present and the past wrap into a story of parallel lives as the reader discovers the family tree of the characters and why the haunting takes place. It is interwoven with a story of young love, an unsolved murder and personal relationships between people from opposite sides of "the track", or in this case "the lake". I consider this book a good read for a stormy winter night.
