Book Review: Lost Aboard

Lost Aboard (Review): Ghosts Ahoy!


Ever have an encounter with a ghost? No? Well, if you want to have one, make your way to the Star of India at the Maritime Museum in San Diego. More than one of them await your visit.


Lost Aboard, by S. Faxon and Theresa Halvorsen, will provide you with an introduction in advance of your visit. There’s some backstory about the ship, the lives and personalities of the ghosts before and after they lost theirs, and the varying reactions of those who encounter these spirits. Even if you don’t read this book in preparation for coming face-to-ghost with a member of the spirit world, you’ll find the book, which is a quick, short read, fascinating and well worth your time and money.
