Haunted Journey (Paperback)
In 1879, two years after he's run away from his family's Muskoka home, fifteen-year-old Caleb Lawson is haunted by dreams of his younger sisters in distress. These dreams lead him on a journey home, where he desperately hopes he'll be welcome. Along the way, he must confront his reasons for leaving. On arrival, Caleb is unprepared for the family tragedy that awaits him. And to add to his challenges, he must contend with Andrew, a bitter young man intent on sabotaging his attempts to start over.
Haunted Journey is also the story of Samantha, Caleb's eleven-year-old sister, who is torn apart by worry over her brother's fate and anger at his leaving. A village doctor, a new teacher, a life-threatening storm, dangerous bears, and rumours of a local witch add drama to this richly detailed, nostalgic story, set in a period when closely-knit families and communities pulled together in times of trouble.
