In Lily Dale, New York, the dead don't die. Instead, they flit among the elms and stroll along the streets. According to Spiritualist who have ruled this community for five generations, the spirits never go away - and they stay anything but quiet. Every summer twenty thousand guests come to consult the town's mediums in hope of communicating with dead relatives or catching a glimpse of the future. Weaving past with present, the living with the dead, award winning journalist and best selling author Christine Wicker investigates the longings for love and connection that draws visitors to "the Dale", introducing us to a colourful cast of characters along the way - including such famous visitors as Susan B. Anthony, Harry Houdini and Mae West. Laugh-out-loud funny at times, this honest portrayal shows us that ultimately it doesn't matter what we believe, it is belief itself that can transform us all.

A journalist is sent to investigate Lily Dale but she just doesn't do an article for her paper. She goes there many times and ends up writing this 'warts and all' book. Some things she pooh poohs and some things she can't explain but I have no doubt that her time at Lily Dale has left it's mark on her and all for the best.
