Into the Attic

Into the Attic

Examining the past is one thing, but what happens when the past examines us?

As writer Caroline Crane confronts her tragic past amidst the mountains of boxes in her attic, the ghosts of her parents and first husband appear. They had died in a car accident nearly twenty years earlier when her two children were small. Caroline has many things she wants to tell the ghosts, but they have come with strong opinions and stunning revelations. And it is Thanksgiving, which Caroline and her second husband are hosting. Soon the guests will arrive: her children, other family, and friends. What happens next is extraordinary.

This often-comic novel explores the fallibility of memory, a reimagining of the afterlife, and how love that endures can help us move on.
