What's the title of that book about the cemetary keeper who plays baseball with his dead brother in the clearing every night and falls for a sailor or something?

I have vague recollections about this book and that I really enjoyed it but can't remember what it was called!

Does it sound familiar?

Ooh it does, but I can't remember. Now you have made me think!. Was it a place name?

<grasping at straws>

Oh gosh not sure if it was a place name!

Glad I didn't imagine the book though

I was beginning to wonder if there could possibly be more than one book out there with that plot!

Thank you snigger. I think I'll see if I can get it out of the library tomorrow and re-read it.

Wasn't there a similar book by tha author of the five people you meet in heaven? Or even that book?
