We begin with a whaling trip that ends in disaster. Then in 2014 Remy and her daughter Olivier move into Eli's old home - a 300 year old cottage. Which is when this story stops being spooky but becomes just a bit silly. I loved the cover and the idea of this book, but I couldn't get past Eli's way of haunting. This is probably me in the minority as I know it will appeal to lots of other readers.
