In August, 1939, reporter David Charleston, jaded by his coverage of the Spanish Civil War, has retreated to keep a lonely lighthouse on Lake Michigan. Lines of war are being drawn in Europe, and the US is still laid low by the Great Depression, but Charleston finds hopeful company in phantoms from 1849--ghosts of the hopeful immigrants whose ship foundered on the reef offshore, 50 years before the light was built. And yet, these figments from the past have a way of forcing him to turn to face the present.
