Alexandra's beloved grandfather was fond of saying, "Life is full of surprises, and sometimes the good and the bad get all bunched up together". However, he could not have prepared her for the shock of her life: the death of her father, a man she never knew, and his legacy -- a cabin on prairie land formerly owned by the LaFreniere family. Lonny LaFreniere's stepfather is the kindest man Lonny's ever known. But Lonny, tormented by guilty memories and dreams and visions he can't shake, rejects the land Pop always wanted to pass on to him. How could he have known it would end up in the hands of a city girl like Alexandra Marie Sinclair? As their story unfolds, Lonny and Alex are haunted and guided by spirits that draw them to the land and to each other in this moving and tender coming-of-age novel of not one but two unforgettable teens.
