With is a tale, full of unexpected twists and turns. What starts out as a suspenseful recounting of child abduction evolves into a story of Robin Kerr growing up in the wilds of the Ozarks, left to fend for herself on a remote, inaccessible mountain-top. Without 'human' company for a decade, forced to live off the land, Robin is never alone; her animal companions grow more numerous year by year, and the 'live ghost' of a young boy who once lived on the mountain is her constant companion. With a dog, a young girl and a completely new variety of ghost as the main viewpoint characters in this novel, Donald Harington, creator of the mythic town of Stay More, has given us a triumphant story of survival.
