Elizabeth Ann Shumway is a hauntingly lovely little eight-year-old full of curiosity, and a sense of adventure. The problem is that she’s a ghost! Learning how to be a ghost isn’t always easy. It can be especially hard when you’ve just helped bury your mother and baby brother. Trying to comfort her papa is difficult, too, when she can’t make him hear her.
In fact, Elizabeth Ann can’t seem to make anyone hear or see her. What she wants most is to find a way to stop being so lonely. It’s hard for a loving little ghost without a family. That’s why she’s been haunting Salt Lake City since 1848 trying to find a home. Elizabeth Ann Shumway is a Pioneer Ghost. [from publisher's web site]
