Sarah's Cross

Tommy Ryan was unprepared to meet a ghost, yet there she was, waiting anxiously at the edge of the forest, eager for his help. Bound to the place where she died, Sarah is unwilling to move on until Tommy helps her reconnect with her mother and solves the mystery of what happened to her soldier father, who went missing in the Philippines during WWII. But time is running out for Sarah. She has delayed her departure for too long, and now a dark and brooding presence is determined to take her into a place of utter desolation along with anyone else who gets in the way. Set against the backdrop of Wisconsin's vast Northwoods, a grand lake-home and a small, rustic cabin, Sarah's Cross is a tale of innocent life interrupted, family tragedy, and the kindness of a stranger who stands up to darkness when it comes claiming its victims.
