In 1918, the world seems on the verge of apocalypse.
Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish
influenza, and the government ships young men to the front lines of a brutal
war, creating an atmosphere of fear and confusion. Sixteen-year-old Mary
Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to séances and spirit
photographers for comfort, but she herself has never believed in ghosts. During
her bleakest moment, however, she’s forced to rethink her entire way of looking
at life and death, for her first love—a boy who died in battle—returns in
spirit form. But what does he want from her?
Featuring haunting archival early-twentieth-century
photographs, this is a tense, romantic story set in a past that is eerily like
our own time. Download and start listening now!
