"Saving the Ghost" is a story of resilience and courage. When Ellen McInnis left home at 17, she was free of her abusive father's violence against her.

But there's only one living family member she can trust, her elderly Aunt Mercy, and Mercy is keeping her own secrets, devastating secrets of unimaginable horrors and betrayal.
