In Case I Go

Eli and his parents have returned to their family home in a small mountain town named Coalton, hoping to restore calm and stability to their marriage. But under pressure from real-estate developers and a high-end subdivision that has disturbed a historic graveyard, Coalton is no longer the remote idyll they remembered. When Eli meets Mary, a troubled Ktunaxa girl who lives next door, they discover they both have a foot in multiple worlds with past lives rife with seduction and betrayal. A new kind of ghost story, In Case I Go reveals the many ways we’re haunted by the misdeeds of our ancestors.
