Two sisters who never met. Two decades of intimate journals. One tragic ending. 

A Ghost Comes Calling tells of one woman's journey to understand herself, her birth family, and especially her lost sister. Author and adoptee Rebecca Titchner turns to her sister, Dana's, writings to explore why she disavowed her family and left her husband and children. Instead of finding happiness, Dana was murdered by a man she believed was promised to her by the gods. Through Dana’s story, Titchner digs deep into her own past and the undeniable impact adoption has made in her life. 

A Ghost Comes Calling is a memoir that explores the complexities of family, relationships, loss and mental health.

A beautifully-told tale of an adoptee coming to terms with a difficult reality

It’s rare that I have the time to read a book from cover to cover in one sitting. In this case, I had no option. Once started, there was no turning back.

This is the story of an adoptee who found her birth parents, and then set out to know a sister she’d never met. The search began with hope, and ends with crumbling realities and devastating truths as the author begins to finally know her sister through a collection of journals left behind. Along the way, she discovers a sister who lived two lives, one with the people she chose to be with, and another in the pages of her journals, the only place she felt free to invent the woman she dreamed of becoming. 



Hopes fade, reality intrudes, and within the pages of the journal, the author finds herself with a front row center seat to her sister’s descent and ultimate demise at the hand of a man to whom she felt spiritually bonded. This is an amazing story of discovery, the acceptance of difficult truths, and the realization that there is always a tempered and weary love to be salvaged in any relationship, no matter how difficult the circumstances.
