Spending Christmas with Aunt Corinne is not exactly what thirteen year old Joey is looking forward to.  But with his Mom recuperating from a car accident, he really has no choice.  He hasn't seen his aunt since her husband died in the summer.  And now, he can't believe the change in her.  His beautiful, caring aunt has turned into an old lady who doesn't care what Joey does.  Can grief really change a person this much?  Joey doesn't want to find out.  There is something going on that really scares him.  What could possibly changed Aunt Corinne?  And what is going on up at the lighthouse?
