An American ghost story, told from the ghost's point of view, both as a ghost and while she was alive. With both a past and present time-line, we learn about Emma Rose's life and  the events that lead up to to her death and her determination not to leave the mansion she has lived in for a hundred years. Now, a ghost hunter has come to clear the house and Emma Rose is just as determined to stay there. Not a conventional ghost story, The Last to See Me is a beautifully told tale of love and loss and missed chances. I missed her when I finished the book. I think you will as well. The Last to See Me is in contention for my favorite book of the year! - Sally
