Back in the day, Alden had a best friend, Garnet, who had a girl, Dana. Alden was known as the “Goldenchild.” Though he had once been Garnet’s protector, Garnet had grown into his own and eventually began to eclipse Alden’s own successes. When the three youngsters, Alden, Garnet and Dana, met up on a cliff path just days before Christmas, something happened—something that would change the future for all three young people.
In The Saltwater Ghost, Sheila Jane weaves a careful plot that urges the reader to continue forward and to examine the question: can one ever really return home? Also consider: are ghosts real? Comparing Alden’s story to a legend from days gone by, one that tells of a young woman who lost her love, then herself, at sea, the setting itself (Prince Edward Island) lends a mystery to this tale. Add into the mix, Alden’s efforts to re-unite with his children, his new love-interest, and a fully unsuspected discovery at the end, and the reader is delivered a truly satisfying tale.
