Timeless, beautiful, and haunting, spirals connect four episodes, from prehistory through the far future, in this Michael L. Printz Honor Book.

In prehistory, a girl picks up a charred stick and makes the first written signs.

Tens of centuries later, the treacherous waters of Golden Beck take Anna, who people call a witch.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, in the halls of a Long Island hospital at the beginning of the twentieth century, a mad poet watches the ocean and knows the horrors it hides

And there in the far future, as an astronaut faces his destiny on the first spaceship sent from earth to colonize another world.

Each of the characters in these mysterious linked stories embarks on a journey of discovery and survival; carried forward through the spiral of time, none will return to the same place.

The Ghosts of Heaven is a mesmerizing novel from Printz Award winner Marcus Sedgwick, author of Midwinterblood, Revolver, and She Is Not Invisible.
