About the Book

When Willa Dixon's brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visit the Grey Man. Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls. Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?

Critical Praise

"Magical realism meets New England taciturnity in this story about redemption set on the coast of Maine. . . . An engrossing story."  —Booklist   "Creepy, romantic and oozing with atmosphere, Mitchell deftly brings readers along on a nail-biting adventure."  —Carrie Jones, author of Need   "Willa's messy, complicated love for her family is heartbreaking and true, as are her mistakes and acts of bravery. Readers will be swept away in this raw and beautifully-told story about grief, forgiveness and what binds us—love."  —Jo Knowles, author of Jumping Off Swings   "There's enough ghostly creepiness here to ensure a few shivers."  —Bulletin   "Beautifully written, refreshing, and unique."  —School Library Journal
