Ramona Montoya has returned to her ancestral village of Guadalupe, New Mexico to live as a reclusive artist. But when her brother and his wife are accidentally killed, strange things begin to happen. Her dead sister-in-law sits up in her coffin and asks Ramona to take care of her son. And when she gets home, she finds the ghosts of her grandparents cooking food, making coffee, and handing her the generations-old journal of a fabled forebear.

This debut novel begins with news of a death, but soon the dead are sitting up and demanding attention. Ramona must cope with a talkative sister-in-law and her husband, plus her grandparents, all dead, and all moving into her home that looks out on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. She must endure their constant interference with the present. The past comes alive too in the novel's eponymous journal, one written in 1924 by the village historian and sculptor, a relative of Ramona's. Here the past and present are surreally intertwined.About the Author :
Rick Colligan has been a roofer for 20 years. He lives with his family in the mountains north of Questa, New Mexico.
