I was approached by the author, Phyllis Newman, to read and give an honest review. I am always intrigued by a good ghost story. This book is so much more than a ghost story. Honesty, the time period is not usually what I prefer but the author did such an excellent job with the characters and plot that I didn’t even notice.
England, 1922. Times are hard. Anne Chatham is a clever, modest young woman with little money, no prospects for marriage, and a never-shared secret—she can see spirits. Anne finds employment as a typist at Northfield House, the grand country manor of the Wellington family. Her employer, the wheelchair-bound Mr. Wellington, is kindly. His haughty wife is not. He has two handsome sons, the wry and dashing Thomas and the dark and somber Owen. Anne feels sure her prayers have been heard. Until the terrifying night she stumbles upon a tortured spirit roaming the dark halls of Northfield, a spirit that only she can see. In a search for answers, she finds herself drawn to Owen as they unearth a tragic story from the Wellington family’s past—a beautiful young bride gone missing on her wedding day. Then tragedy strikes again on the night of a glittering masquerade ball…
If you are looking for a good ghost story with lots of mystery and twists this book is for you. I highly recommend. Thank you Phyllis Newman and PageSpring Publishing for the opportunity to read this book.
