This book...oh goodness, this book! One second Charons Crossing will lure you in with its quirky characters, slapstick humor and calm contemplation of life (and afterlife) philosophies. You and your curiosity will be content to cozy up by the fire with the perfect cup of tea, watching ghostly mysteries unfold. Then BAM--you'll find yourself crying on the couch, eating a sorrow-baked scone and checking in with loved ones. The power of this story will sneak up on you much like a visit from The Manager, but the importance of the gentle, considerate light it shines on human challenges cannot be overstated.
