After the death of her beloved husband Billy, Daisy Majesty falls into a deep depression. Everyone, from her family to her late husband's best friend, Sam Rotondo, worry about her. She's too depressed to eat and only mopes around the house.
July passes into August, and Daisy continues to mourn and not eat or work at her trade as a spiritualist. Although she's in a very unsteady mood, she finally agrees to use the Ouija board for her long-time best customer, Mrs. Pinkerton. During this session, Daisy has her spirit control, Rolly, dispense some harsh truths, something she's never done before. Daisy is appalled, but everyone else is proud of her. Mrs. Pinkerton's son (and Daisy's best pal) Harold Kincaid even offers to take Daisy to Egypt. Daisy doesn't want to go, but her family insists, so she agrees.
Once in Egypt, Daisy and Harold are not only plagued by the heat, but strange things happen to them. Sam Rotondo, who promised Billy he'd watch out for Daisy, hies himself to the Middle East. There, during one of a series of untoward events, Sam gets himself kidnapped in Daisy's stead. Then something even more remarkable happens after Daisy, Harold and several Turkish fellows manage to rescue him.
Neither Daisy nor Sam is quite sure what to make of their relationship once they return to staid and safe Pasadena, California.
Ancient Spirits not only takes the listener on an adventure with Daisy, Harold and Sam, but warms the heart and soul.
