Ron and Connie McCall find almost everything in their lives new. They're in a new city, at a new school and a new job, and occupying a new apartment in a home with a history - which is all very manageable until a neighbor is mugged, and supernatural visits complicate their lives. Neither of them has an interest in paranormal phenomena until they learn of the death of a previous resident. Her mysterious visits to their apartment confound police, landlords, and friends. One such friend is a thirty-year-old, developmentally delayed man who is a neighborhood favorite. Their affection for him becomes an endearing thread woven through a knotty fabric of paranormal challenges and a cast of quirky characters.
