Summary
After benignly haunting a series of people for 130 years, Helen meets a teenage boy who can see her and together they unlock the mysteries of their pasts
Summary
Although Helen died 130 years ago, her spirit is still bound to the earthly plane -- and she has "cleaved" to one human host after another, watching the world around her but not really participating in it. Currently, Helen observes the world through the body of a high school English teacher, and one day, she is startled to realize that one of the teacher's students can see her within the host! -- Description by Ellen Foreman
