In Second Glance, bestselling author Jodi Picoult tells an evocative story entiwining a powerful drama of the heart's redemption with the disturbing history of eugenics.
A developer has slated an ancient Abenaki Indian burial ground for a strip mall, and now strange happenings have the inhabitants of tiny Comtosook, Vermont, talking of supernatural forces at work. Ross Wakeman is a ghost hunter who's never seen a ghost - all he's searching for is something to end the pain of losing his fiancée, Aimee, in a car accident. He's tried suicide - any number of times. Now, Ross lives only for a way to connect with Aimee from beyond. Searching the site for signs of the paranormal, Ross meets the mysterious Lia, who sparks him to life for the first time in years. But the discoveries that await Ross are beyond anything he could dream of in this world - or the next.
"In Second Glance, love does travel through time. You don't have to believe in ghosts to acknowledge the path it takes."
