A white-capped gothic on Cape Cod, more persuasive than most, in which Caroline, Caroline (are there two of her? did she die? is she still around?) lends her unseen presence to the household where plain Martha comes to look after a little girl, Emma. Emma's the niece of the man Martha once loved--he's blind now--and the only survivor of the accident which took the lives of her parents and there are further casualties to follow. Definitely for her, her.
