The Other Shepards

Front Cover
Thorndike Press, 2000 - Identity - 220 pages
Part ghost story, part love story, this extraordinary novel is a narrative of loss and healing, reality and memory. Eighth grader Holland Shepard and her younger sister Geneva are shadowed by other people's memories of their long-deceased brothers and sister. The tragedy has defined them their whole lives. But now Annie has arrived, and she opens up a new world for the Shepard girls, and gives them the courage to embark on a journey to make peace with their past, and to redefine themselves outside of grief and memories.
