Maine-bred, independent Rilla Brae is no stranger to the deep. She knows the rhythms of hard work and harder seas. But when she experiences the sudden death of her father, the veil between the living and the dead blurs and she begins to be haunted by a girl on a nearby, uninhabited island. Then Rilla meets Sam, a University of Southern Maine archeology student tasked with excavating the very island where the ghostly girl has appeared. Sam tells Rilla the island has a history no locals talk about due to the shame the events brought to the working waterfront community. As Rilla helps Sam to unearth the island's many secrets, Rilla's visions grow until the two discover a tragedy kept silent for years. And it's a tragedy that has everything to do with Rilla's past.

I picked this up because I wanted to read about Maine, plus throw in a ghost story and historical inspiration, and I'm in. This suffered from being too long, though the writing was good.
