?SUMMERLAND? is a most unusual book. It is written by Spirit, those whom we may call ?Guardian Angels? and has been written specifically as a NOVEL. This is the very first time this has been done. It has been written as a novel for a special purpose, so that this simple story of life, the change (Death) and our eternal existence may be told. Its aim is to express the fact that there is more to us than some of us would like to acknowledge, but it is something that more and more of us are beginning to believe in and understand. Man has an inherent knowledge that something else exists - a God, or Creator, whichever name we give it. Our Guardian Angels wrote it this way so that our children may also learn of God from a source that complements what most people believe -that there is a Creator, a God, that there is hope and for most, peace after the change. Our Guardian Angels do not want to change your minds; you have freewill. They just want to make you aware, so that you may make more informed choices about the way you live this life. ?SUMMERLAND? explores what happens and why. It shows, through its simple story, what form life in the next world takes and most importantly, why we must all finally, take responsibility for not only our actions and inactions but also the thoughts and intentions behind them. May the great Creator Bless you All.

Boston, 1859. A nation on the brink of war. Confidence men prowl the streets for fresh marks. Mediums swindle the newly bereaved. Into this world of illusion and intrigue comes William Mumler, a manipulating mastermind and criminal jeweler. Mumler hopes to make his fortune by photographing spirits for Boston’s elite. The key to his venture: a shy girl named Hannah who sees and manifests the dead and washes up on Boston’s harbor along with her strange, intense mother, Claudette. As Mumler and Hannah’s fame grows throughout Boston, everybody wants a piece: Bill Christian, a brothel tough; Algernon Child, a drunken rival; Fanny A. Conant, a sly suffragette; and William Guay, a religious fanatic. These rogues among a host of others, including the great spirit rapper Kate Fox, form powerful bonds with the spirit photographers, one of which will end in murder. Mumler’s first and last mistake: the dead cannot be made to heel. Roughly based on the real-life story of William H. Mumler, spirit photographer and his clairvoyant wife, Hannah Mumler, Shadows in Summerland immerses the reader in a shifting world of light and shade where nothing is quite what it seems at first glance. A soaring and resplendently Gothic novel spanning three decades, it is as much an homage to the Golden Age ghost stories of Edith Wharton and Henry James as it is a companion to the revisionist historical epics of Peter Carey and Sarah Waters, with a little steampunk all its own.
