Jenny Muldoon has just moved to Fort Sayers, an army base built on the site of a school where, long ago, children from different Native American tribes were taken to be taught white culture. Jenny has a big chip on her shoulder: she’s not happy about sharing her mother with a new stepfather or about moving to yet another school. And now she feels more alone than ever—until she discovers that someone is sharing her room, someone from another time and place. It’s the ghost of a boy named Jonah Flying Cloud, who died at the Indian school in 1880. In a series of nighttime visitations, Jenny learns that Jonah’s spirit is trapped, unable to go on to the land of his ancestors. In order to help Jonah find release, Jenny has to dig into a past that’s been buried for years, to reveal the startling truth about the place at the edge of the earth.

Written with sensitivity and emotion and based on historical accounts, this novel will leave a lasting impression on readers everywhere.
