Avery is looking forward to another summer at Grandma's farm, at least until her brother says he's too old for "Kingdom," the imaginary world they'd spent years creating. Lucky for her, there's a new kid staying in the cottage down the road: a city boy with a famous dad, Julian's more than a little full of himself, but he's also a storyteller like Avery. So when he announces his plan to film a ghost story, Avery is eager to join in. Unfortunately, Julian wants to film at Hilliard House, a looming, empty mansion that Grandma has absolutely forbidden her to enter. As terrified as Avery is of Grandma's wrath, the allure of filmmaking is impossible to resist. As the kids explore the secrets of Hilliard house, eerie things begin to happen, and the "imaginary" dangers in their movie threaten to become very real. Have Avery and Julian awakened a menacing presence? Can they turn back before they go too far?
In the heady days of the sixties, many people sought solutions to mankind's troubles in ancient religions and found that old wisdom had its place in the modern world. Among them were the followers of Thorne Blackburn, all seekers after Truth. The group settled at Shadow's Gate, a magnificent old house in upstate New York. During the climactic night of Blackburn's most powerful ceremony, chaos erupted. Thorne Blackburn had vanished. And Katherine, Thorne's life-partner and the mother of one of his young children, was dead. All that was thirty years ago, but Truth Blackburn, daughter of Thorne and Katherine, is still seeking truths - the truth of what happened that night at Shadow's Gate, the truth about the magickal powers her father claimed to wield, the truth about her long-lost half-brother and half-sister. She may be about to get some answers. A legacy has summoned Truth back to Shadow's Gate. Fueled once again by a decade's search for meaning, and led by the mysterious, charismatic Julian Pilgrim, a new group of followers of Thorne Blackburn's Way is preparing to perform the same ritual that killed Truth's mother. Not just the story of a woman's quest for identity, Ghostlight is a powerful novel about the fulfillment of human potential and the search for meaning in life.
