Take Lake Huron and Mackinac Island in the 19th Century, add a ship full of of passengers and sailors, and stir in the magic of Manitou the great spirit of Mackinac Island. This book is mysterious, romantic, and full of exciting action. It is a great combination for readers of all kinds. Cora seems to have powers from the spirit of Manitou, Jean Luc is a kind but haunted soul, and Nicholas has a past that he now has to face. The author, Alexandria Nolan, is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.— jill
