|Plot Summary of Here I Stay|
|"The first time Andrea's brother, Jim, heard a voice they thought nothing of it. Six months later, following a debilitating accident, Andrea moves Jim into the decaying mansion she had inherited. Andrea begins having nightmares, and Jim develops an affinity for the old cemetery behind the house. Andy comes to realize that her brother is drawn to the ghost of a woman who had lived in the house long before. Andrea and her new friend--and romantic interest, Martin, research the history of the house. Andy doesn't know if she should get her brother out of the house that seemed to haunt him personally, which would lead them straight back to where they had started--broke and homeless."
