AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What do you do when you've just lost three of your best mates? Who do you turn to when your life is suddenly bound to a wheelchair?

'Dan has dodged the Reaper again. If he were a cat, five of his nine lives would be gone—when his mates didn't even get second chances. He's still grieving their deaths when he's dragged on a family holiday at a remote island lighthouse.

'Left alone, at what feels like the end of the earth, Dan starts sensing a mysterious girl. Is she a dream? Or has he somehow hooked into the spirit world?

'The lighthouse logbook helps illuminate some of the girl's tragic story but Dan will have to dig deeper to find answers and the inspiration to embrace life again.' (From the publisher's website.)
