Recently widowed Sylvie Andrus moves with her young son, Jason, to a small river town, and discovers she must solve a two-century old mystery to rid herself of the ghost who haunts her. Still grieving, she finds the ghost of her husband, Ned, waiting in her new home to seduce her. At first, she resists his overtures, but soon she surrenders, and they begin to collaborate on a book about Clarinda Braxton, a Revolutionary Era painter who disappeared without a trace in 1794. Sylvie becomes obsessed by the task she’s set herself. Distressed by his mother’s behavior, nine-year-old Jason isn’t deceived by the ghost’s appearance. He knows this creature is not his father. Jason warns Sylvie the ghost is evil but, swept up by her yearning for her husband and determined to reveal what happened to Clarinda, she delays telling the ghost to leave. Only when she knows the truth about Clarinda will she be able to move forward with her own life. A multi-voiced story set in several time periods, POSSESSION tells the story of people obsessed by the mystery of long-buried murders and how that possession changes them.
