In a disused lighthouse on the Devon coast lives Peter Straker, a recluse who, in his dreams, is visited by an oddly disparate group of people from a grandmother to a teenager.
But they have all been dead for 24 years - and Straker thinks he killed them. Many years ago, newly-married Imogen Doody's husband went to work one day and never came back, leaving her angry at life and other people.
Now Imogen has inherited a cottage near Straker's lighthouse, a piece of good fortune she badly needs.
But the cottage is falling down, and she needs help restoring it...Guilt, emotional bruising and a Tiger Moth plane lie at the heart of this story of two misfits.
Related with infectious warmth and wit, it is a testament to the essential goodness and resilience of the human spirit.
