In his long-awaited return to full-length fiction, Peter S. Beagle has crafted a beautiful modern-day ghost story that confirms his status as one of the world's most original and emotionally rewarding storytellers...

Tamsin is a young woman who died over 300 years ago. Jennifer is a young American, transplanted to England by her mother's remarriage. They are two lonely souls, on opposite sides of life and death--a boundary they are both about to cross...

Peter S. Beagle is:

"The class act of fantasy writing, the only contemporary to remind one of Tolkien, and, in his darker moments, Dineson." --Booklist (starred review)

"An artist writing about matters of consequence... His is the very special magic of the poet and storyteller whose only desire is to bring forth beauty and enjoyment for his readers." --Chicago News

"A shimmering, knowing and humorous intelligence, and a seemingly boundless font of creativity." --Washington Post

* A highly-respected author: Beagle has received many major awards, nominations and reviews, including a New York Times Notable Book
