Faith can never forget the night of her mother’s death. She was young then and unaware that the mother she held in her arms was no more than a ghost. Now that she is a grown woman, Faith again encounters death when her stepbrother dies in his sleep. Her brother’s ghost appears before her and soon, after many years, her mother’s ghost goes to her as well. These sightings leave Faith restless, threatened by the fact that they are occurring just as her dear father’s health is deteriorating.
