Synopsis[ edit ] The book follows Helen, the ghost of a year-old woman that has been dead for years. The beginning of the story follows her through her life as a ghost, playing the role of invisible muse to a handful of artistically inclined people, lest she be cast back into her own personal hell.

Brown that Helen realizes that a student named Billy is aware of her presence. With the two being the only known beings of their type, James and Helen are quickly drawn to each other but are faced with the difficulties of residing within the bodies of other people. Characters[ edit ] Jenny: Jenny is a teenage girl under the strict rule of her religious parents. She has given up trying to reason with them and any attempts to have any feelings or life of her own. She, like Billy, has lost hope, and her emptiness makes her the perfect vessel for Helen.

Helen: Helen is a young woman who died many years ago. She remembers pieces of her old life, bits about a child who seems to be important to her, and she also remembers an intense fear of water. When Helen meets James they begin to fall in love. James helps her remember her past by finding Jenny. Helen then uses her body as a vessel. Now that James and Helen are in real bodies again they can be together, but this comes at a cost. High on drugs most of the time, he tries desperately to forget the night his father attacked his mother.

The overwhelming emptiness he feels finally consumes him and he attempts suicide. His soulless body now becomes the perfect vessel for James, a young man killed during World War I.

He has now found his vessel Billy, and through Billy he has found Helen. Reception[ edit ] Critical reception for A Certain Slant of Light has been predominantly positive, with the ALA making it one of their book picks for Washington Post. Retrieved 24 November

A Certain Slant of Light Quotes

Eh, really? Ghosts are somewhere down near zombies on the sexiness scale, could I really become invested in such a relationship? Apparently yes, but these ghosts have found a way around the whole touching predicament and wasted no time getting back into it by possessing the bodies of people whose souls have abandoned them. I have read some of the negative reviews on A Certain Slant of Light and the thing most often pointed out is something which usually annoys me: the way Helen and James fall so quickly in love and have sex after only meeting each other a few times. I could believe in the desperation. In this novel, Laura Whitcomb gives me what I need to care about the couple, whilst maintaining a beautiful and slightly creepy atmosphere. However, this story it still far more than just a romance.
