Watch Over Me is an unusual book. Mila is eighteen and has aged out of the foster care system. She is traumatized, lonely, broken and ravaged by grief and guilt. She takes a job teaching at an isolated self-sustaining farm on the Northern California coast. The couple at The Farm have many adopted foster children and three interns. All have experienced trauma. They farm flowers, fruits and vegetables and everyone pitches in. The Farm is haunted by ghosts who come out at night. Everyone seems to accept the presence of the ghosts. The significance of the ghosts is revealed by the end of the story. The story is a slow build, quiet, well written and alternates between Mila's past and present. The setting is eerie and atmospheric. This book is haunting and healing. It is one of those stories that will stay with you.
