Publisher's Summary

The ghosts of the past come calling in a spellbinding heart stopper from the "Queen of the Northern Gothic".

After the end of her marriage, Kate Granger has retreated to her parents' home on Lake Superior to pull herself together - only to discover the body of a murdered woman washed into the shallows. Tucked in the folds of the woman's curiously vintage gown is an infant, as cold and at peace as its mother. No one can identify the woman. Except for Kate. She's seen her before. In her dreams...

One hundred years ago, a love story ended in tragedy, its mysteries left unsolved. It's time for the lake to give up its secrets. As each mystery unravels, it pulls Kate deeper into the eddy of a haunting folktale that has been handed down in whispers over generations. Now, it's Kate's turn to listen.

As the drowned woman reaches out from the grave, Kate reaches back. They must come together, if only in dreams, to right the sinister wrongs of the past.

Great ghost story!

Fabulous ghost story! Well written and even though I figured it about with about 2 hours left, I still really enjoyed the reveal!


Xe Sand's wonderful narration brought the emotions of this book to life!

Highly recommend!

Great mystery with ghosts and romance

Wendy Webb once again has grabbed my attention from the first of the book. She weaves a tail of gods, romance and mystery that spans generations.

Haunting tale of love & despair

A beautifully haunting tale of love that encompasses the past & follows the future. A love so strong that old wrongs can be set straight. I usually try to stretch my audiobooks out to last a few days but I couldn't not continue to listen. A tragic tale with many unexpected twists & turns but in the end, love remains.

you made a new fan

I truly was engrossed in this book it came as a recommendation from Amazon. I couldn't stop listening and started ended up having to buy the other books by the same author. Just so engrossing. The narrator truly made it with the way she trailed off when needed.

I couldn't stop listening

This is my first Audible book review, and I couldn't resist sharing the pleasure of listening to this book. I loved this novel--the characters, the setting, the narrator and the twists near the end that I wasn't expecting! Set on the mysterious and beloved north shores of Minnesota, a place I have visited several times myself, I was hooked from the start. Looking forward to reading more of her books.

Well worth a listen/read

I think if I'd got the book without Audible i wouldn't have stuck with it, the first couple of Chapters were not gripping enough for me but each to their own. As Audible was available to add at around £3.50 i purchased and I'm glad I did as I would have missed out on a great novel.

Once I'd got used to the narrator who has an American style accent i only paused it for either a brew, toast or the loo and I chose a pyjamas day !!!!!
It does jump between the early 1900's and modern day and your told where you are but once your familiar with the characters it's fine.
I am going to look for more Wendy Webb novels, I like to find a new Author occasionally but do prefer to find books which are in a Series.
I think this book could make a nice t.v drama, something a little bit different.

The only reason I gave 4 not 5 stars is because I wasn't too keen on the narrator
