Ever since she was a child, Annie Colville has been talking to the dead. She knows they’re dead because for some reason they’re always dressed in chocolate brown. They appear to Annie because they’re worried about life’s unfinished business, like where they left the key to the shed or who should inherit the family tea set.
But Annie’s grown up now and thing begin to get serious after she falls for Evan Bees. It’s hard enough to lose a loved one, but what if you know he could come back to you and he just…doesn’t? As she waits for her missing husband’s return, in chocolate brown or not, Annie searches through her mother’s vast collection of lovers for the other missing man in her life—her father—and struggles with the questions her gift asks of her.
In this beguiling debut novel, Helen Slavin has taken the ghost story into a new dimension. Quirky, irreverent, moving, and a little bit spooky, The Extra Large Medium will charm you completely—even as it’s raising the hairs on the back of your neck.
