Chasing Ghosts by Nicola Pierce
An enthralling novel of two stories that speak to each other across time and thousands of miles.
In 1845, two ships, HMS Erebus and Terror, are Artic- bound. Commander John Franklin and second-in-command Francis Crozier hope to return within two years, but nobody really know how long they will be gone. As time passes with no words from the expedition, the world fears the worst...
In 1849, in Derry, little Weesy Coppin has died of a fever, but her spirit appears to her sister Ann and her brother William.
The two stories collide as Franklin's crew struggle to survive, and Weesy seems bent on haunting her family.
Finally, one ghostly night Ann asks her sister the question on everyone's lips:
Where are the missing ships?
