The Ghosts of Yearning is a gothic novella about profound loss and the boundaries of the real and the unreal. It is partially inspired by The Sixth Sense, The Notebook, and Katherine Mansfield's short story Bliss. It centers on the lives of three womenthe elderly and lonely Maisie Dearborn, the fiercely determined Helen McCardle, who is haunted by a young specter, and Mona Jeffries, whose awkward obsession with her handsome neighbor threatens her own sanity. Its melancholy mosaic creates a complex and fundamentally disturbing psychic mystery as this short story slowly reveals how nearly every word is as important as the pieces of an interlocking jigsaw puzzle.
