Nathaniel, or Natty as his family calls him, is
a young man at a crossroads. His mother wants him to spend time with
her family, far better off than his father, who is a poor vicar. His
father would rather he do just about anything else, and his cousins
have no interest in getting to know him. So what’s a young man with
very few prospects to do?
When Natty meets Miles Lovell, a
sophisticated friend of his cousin, he thinks he’s found something
worth his while. During their long visit together, Natty discovers
things about himself that he never expected, and manages to acquire a
ghostly companion, as well.
Haunted by a faceless woman, who
seems to appear when he’s at his weakest, Natty struggles with his own
nature, and with his family’s increasing difficulties. His mother is
distant, hiding things from him as she never has, and his father is
growing old and tired before his eyes.
While Natty tries to
find his place in the world, his childhood is crumbling around him, and
he becomes more and more convinced that his persistent spirit is a
harbinger of doom. Caught in a web of deceit and desperation, Natty
must decide whether he will let his life be ruled by others, or if he
can make his way on his own, or if the family banshee will bring about
his ruin.Read A Sample
