Life is full of surprises, and sometimes the good and the bad get all bunched up together.” Alexandra’s beloved grandfather said this often. But nothing could have prepared her the death of her father a man she never knew and his legacy a cabin on prairie land near an ancient Native American burial ground. It is at the cabin that she meets Lonny, who seems more troubled than Alexandra. Lonny’s stepfather had once owned that very same cabin and land and always wanted it to go to Lonny. But Lonny, tormented by guilty memories and disturbing visions, refused to take it. Who would have thought it would it end up in the hands of a city girl like Alexandra? He tries not to like her, but is drawn to her nevertheless.

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 tale about two unforgettable teens.

Review:

"All things are bound together. All things connect." As far as Alexandra is concerned, that quote, attributed to Chief Seattle, doesn't do enough to explain the strange way that the good and bad in life always seem to get tangled up together. Her father, a man she's never even met, dies and leaves her with a cabin on a prairie, near an almost-forgotten Native American burial mound. What secrets await her there? And, as if she doesn't have enough to worry about, Alex meets Lonny LaFreniere there; he is haunted by even more ghosts than she is. Martha Brooks weaves a subtle tale of land, love, belonging, and forgiveness. Alexandra and Lonny are smart, real characters: they are both careful to protect themselves, and that's what makes their blossoming relationship especially moving.
