The Ghosts of Beatrice Bird (Paperback)Louisa Morgan (author)
A woman's ability to see ghosts draws her into a journey of redemption and unexpected friendship in this
unforgettable story from the acclaimed author of A Secret History of Witches.
Beatrice Bird is plagued by ghosts. It's a gift she's had since she was a small child. Unfortunately, it's a gift that has grown more intense, shifting from flashes and feelings to physical manifestations she can't escape. In a desperate attempt for relief, Beatrice flees her home, her partner and a psychology practice in San Francisco for a remote island with only nuns and a few cows for company. She sees as few people as she possibly can. She doesn't call home.
Then she meets Anne Iredale, a timid woman who has lost everything that matters to her. For the first time in a long time, Beatrice's gift will be called on to help someone in need. The path to healing awaits both of them - if
Beatrice can find the courage to take the first step.
