Called Home
by Sheila Connolly


A short prequel that started Meg Corey's mysterious adventures on the apple orchard in the small town of Granford, Massachusetts.

Choosing to believe that Deborah really is a ghost, Meg sets out to discover the truth of why she's been around for 200 years and help her find home.
