For most of his life, Lester Halley has existed in a haze of isolation and depression. Haunted by a violent and sorrowful past, and finally having reached the precipice of his ability to cope with living, he leaves the States and finds himself in an historic English small town called Margaret’s Mourning, a place as isolated and lonely as he is. Margaret’s Mourning, however, is far more than merely a strange place that Lester has stumbled upon by accident. As he soon learns, it is a place full of ghosts, both literal and metaphorical, and the more he learns about it—as he makes new, meaningful friendships; as he comes to feel that he belongs there—the more he begins to understand that the things he sees and feels along its cobblestone streets are somehow tied to his own past, and with a love he lost long ago.
