Riassunto: Brian Cooper is the guy next door, a devoted single dad and teacher with a somewhat unusual hobby. Every summer he takes his old sailboat out to explore the wild uninhabited islands of Northern Lake Michigan. The beautiful Christina isn't looking for romance; she has revisited mortal life with a mission. Having left the current House of Benjamin, now cloistered and reclusive, she is determined to find the lost cemetery of the shunned on remote High Island and sanctify it. Brian is charmed by Christina's old world ways and feels her quest is honorable. But the relationship sets out on a rough sea when early 1900's dating etiquette meets modern social norms. Traveling with a chaperone is not part of Brian's fantasy. On the uninhabited and mysterious High Island the paranormal energies explode. However, not every soul wants the gate opened. Rogue Captain Ian WoJimmy, lost with all hands when the fishing vessel Maggie M went down in 1912, feels facing judgment at last might not go his way. He is determined to stop the pair, but what he really wants is to get what Christina has achieved, mortal life. And for that he needs a taste of her living mortal blood. Brian and Christina each have their own versions of spiritual power, but also their own limitations. And every fisherman, even the evil, knows the power of patience. WoJimmy eventually finds his advantage. Before the end Brian learns two things: the dead don't die and women of any century seem to want more than he's willing to give.
