Synopsis

In 1918, the world seems on the verge of apocalypse. Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish influenza and the government ships young men to the front lines, creating an atmosphere of fear and confusion. Sixteen-year-old Mary Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to seances and spirit photographers for comfort, but Mary Shelley has never believed in ghosts. During her bleakest moment, however, she's forced to rethink her entire way of looking at life and death, for her first love--a boy who died in battle--returns. But what does he want from her? Featuring visually arresting archival photographs this is a tense, romantic narrative set in a tumultuous past that is eerily like our own time.
