An Academy Award nominee for one of her screenplays and a critically acclaimed novelist, Beth Gutcheon infuses this exceptional novel with rich, life-like characters and a dark, captivating plot. Her extraordinary insight is matched only by her crystalline prose. Reminiscing about the fateful summer when she was 17, the aged Hannah remembers the joy, astonishment, and, most of all, the terror of her first love. The Maine beach house her family rented that year was haunted by a vengeful ghost. If only Hannah and her beloved Conary could have guessed who the spirit was and what it wanted, they might have escaped the unspeakable tragedy that Hannah can never forget. Narrator Alexandra O'Karma holds listeners spellbound as the victim of a tragic 19th-century love affair wreaks havoc on the lives of two modern young lovers. This moving novel keeps you guessing to the last chilling page.

"MORE THAN YOU KNOW is one of those audio-books that encourages you to drive more or wear your Walkman for an extra few minutes. This story has it all: romance, mystery, and an amazing ghost story. Alexandra O'Karma delivers the ideal rendition of main character Hannah's recollection of her youth. The well-spoken O'Karma captures the listener immediately as she alternates between times present and past. As a girl summering in Maine, Hannah enjoys her first love alongside the horror of otherworldly beings from years ago. O'Karma understands the humor and terror of her role, for she delicately acknowledges the nuances of wit and fear without forgetting the value of engaging characters and an engrossing plot. This one is a must-hear! L.B.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
