In a small town called Dundee on the coast of Maine, an old woman named Hannah Gray begins her story: "Somebody said 'true love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.' I've seen both and I don't know how to tell you which is worse." Hannah has decided, finally, to leave a record of the passionate and anguished long-ago summer in Dundee when she met Conary Crocker, the town bad boy and love of her life. This spare, piercing, and unforgettable novel bridges two centuries and two intense love stories as Hannah and Conary's fate is interwoven with the tale of a marriage that took place in Dundee a hundred years earlier.

Customer Reviews of More Than You Know: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frightening ghost story I'm not easily frightened by ghosts in stories, having read of so many over the years, but this was a real hair-raiser. Telling two interwoven stories at different times in the past, by one of the surviving parties, this book has a few surprises, some sadness, and more than a few beautiful and memorable turns of phrase. Highly recommended.

"Even without the supernatural element, this is a haunting novel shattering and harrowing." (The Boston Sunday Globe)
