A short prequel that started Meg Corey's mysterious adventures on the apple orchard in the small town of Granford, Massachusetts.
Out of a job and living alone in a drafty Colonial house, Meg Corey is supposed to be fixing the house up to sell, but now she's got the flu and she's freezing and she feels very sorry for herself.

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.
