Abstract:

For Jennifer Boylan, creaking stairs, fleeting images in the mirror, and remote whispers were everyday events in the Pennsylvania house she grew up in. But those spirits weren't the only ghosts: Jenny herself--James then--lived in a haunted body, and both her reticent father and her impulsive sister would soon become ghosts to her as well. This book is a candid investigation of what it means to be "haunted." Looking back on the spirits who invaded her family home, Boylan launches a full investigation with the help of an earnest but questionable group of local ghostbusters. Boylan also examines the ways we find connections between the people we once were and the people we become, showing us how love, forgiveness, and humor help us find peace--with our ghosts, with our loved ones, and with the uncanny boundaries, real and imagined, between men and women in our society.--From publisher description.
