More Praise for The Last To See Me:

“Spellbinding from page one.”—Library Journal

“Moving, chilly . . .”—Book Page

“Hauntingly original, provocative, and dashed with wit—The Last to See Me changed the way I see the world.” —Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

“This poem of a novel, exquisitely written, introduced me to the inner life of a ghost and held me spellbound throughout. . . . I heard whisperings from the attic, from under the bed.  M Dressler has written an extraordinary book, poignant and tragic.” —Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of The Beautiful Lost

“M Dressler has created an original world between time and place, but the longings of her characters are very real . . . Don’t miss this unusual and wonderful novel.” —Carolyn Haines, USA Today bestselling author of the Sarah Booth Delaney mystery series

The Last to See Me is a riveting supernatural duel that reveals itself one measured and lyrical gut punch at a time.  A compelling and beautifully written page-turner.” —Scott Hawkins, author of The Library at Mount Char

“A marvelously written, brave, and (yes) haunting novel. M Dressler has given us a remarkable and unforgettable character.” — Jeff Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Blame

“Dressler swaths us in gentle prose that suddenly turn to barbed wire. Readers will find in its supernatural theme a new way to think about place, alienation, and the yearnings that make ghosts of us all. This is a writer working at the height of her powers.” —W. Scott Poole, Bram Stoker Award nominee and author of In the Mountains of Madness: The Life and Extraordinary Afterlife of H.P. Lovecraft

“Reminiscent of The Others, the living are haunting the dead in The Last to See Me. Dressler has exquisitely crafted a world . . . in which you will be ensnared and entranced .” —Wendy Webb, bestselling author of The Fate of Mercy Alban
