In 1965, the author moved into a house on Pancake Hill. Jodi Sykes discovered her ability to communicate with the dearly departed at the age of three. Throughout her childhood, she was visited on an almost a nightly basis from the world of Spirit.
The House on Pancake Hill chronicles her journey of shielding her abilities from her friends and family, to suppressing them completely over the course of twenty years. She finally came to terms with her gifts and has embraced them.
