But Seaside was more than just a project; it was spot that had called to him his entire life.

And then one night he saw her . . .

Her name is Constance Elizabeth Canfield and she tells him Seaside has been her home for over 150 years. But Constance is no ghost; rather, she claims that she has been somehow magically trapped between this life and the next. At first, Garrett can t believe her crazy story the woman had to be lying And yet, there was something about Constance that was from another time . . .

Soon this mysterious woman and flesh and blood man share a closeness they cannot deny. But just as their love begins to bloom, Constance s presence starts mysteriously fading away, soon to be gone forever. Is their love doomed or is it strong enough to transcend time, and even death itself?"

Barclay (More Than Words Can Say) turns in a lukewarm, clunky supernatural romance. Adam and Constance Canfield died simultaneously thousands of miles apart in 1840: she fell to her death from the widow’s walk of their Massachusetts house, Seaside, while he was lost at sea. In the present, Boston College architecture professor Garrett Richmond is intrigued by the story of the couple’s doomed love and drawn to renovate Seaside. Garrett approaches the project with a grounded enthusiasm that is quickly rocked by the appearance of what seems to be first a dream and then a ghost—of Constance Canfield. When Constance proves that she is more corporeal than a woman dead for over 150 years should be, Garrett’s life is shaken on multiple levels, while Constance grapples with the complexities of loving two men in two different times. Reliance on heavy-handed exposition (“What Constance did not know was that over the years...”), stilted sentences, and a predictable ending make this ghost story good only for a yawn.
