This book initially reminded me a little of a movie I loved when I was little-The Ghost and Mrs, Muir. Unfortunately, as I read, the feeling began to slip away. The idea of letters found was a great one, but I think what lost me was Tom's overbearing cocky attitude. If I was Lindy, I would send him packing and look for a ghost in the attic. At least he would stay in one place and have eyes only for her. The story line kind of left me cold midway through the book and I had a hard time finishing it. Ms. Ash has a lot of wonderful story elements happening, but I wanted a different kind of hero that I could swoon over.
