A glimpse of bare skin and white fabric.
A breeze when the air is still.
The chilling words of a little girl: “Do you see?”
Sixteen-year old orphan Celia Shepard is haunted not only be the memory of her parents’ death, but by the lingering sensation that someone, or worse yet something, is watching her. Frightened that the dead are after her, Celia packs her bags and says goodbye to what little family she has left—a brother and sister she prays will forgive her for leaving them. In the hope of finding a safe haven away from the ghosts, Celia hitchhikes across the countryside, working in run-down diners, fighting off hunger, and nearly freezing to death in the abandoned vehicles and damp caves in which she finds shelter.
A grave mistake.
The tight grip on her leg.
A man’s warning: “Come out little girl, I’m not going to hurt you. Just get back in the car.”
After throwing herself from the vehicle of a man she shouldn’t have trusted, Celia finds herself in Galveston, Idaho. Led to the Town Hall by a girl in white, Celia stumbles upon a yellowed postcard advertising the Cook Bed and Breakfast—a century old Victorian home run by the elusive Elizabeth Cook. Guided by both her instinct and the ghosts, Celia applies for a job, but quickly regrets it as the Bed and Breakfasts’ secrets slowly emerge, leaving her to wonder if she will ever escape the ghosts that haunt her.
A life of agony and loneliness.
A girl he’s destined to meet.
His father’s dying words: “When there is no life left in the carrier, those that reside within must unlatch themselves and find their own way home.”
Seventeen-year old Joshua Craven is haunted not only by the memory of his father’s death, but by the countless number of souls that seek refuge within his body. A Soul Catcher, and the last of his kind, he is accosted daily by lost spirits who force their way into his body, only removing themselves when he passes the location they want to find peace, seek revenge, or resolve their issues. With his father dead and buried, Joshua packs his things and sets off, searching for a girl whose photograph he found tucked away in his father’s journal—a girl named Celia Shepard.
Celia and Joshua must join together to discover the truth lurking in the shadows of the Cook Bed and Breakfast. Guided by spirits and haunted by things far worse than anything Celia ever imagined, she and Joshua set out on a journey that will either bring them together or pull them apart by the one thing they both fear—death.
