Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Webb (The Tale of Halcyon Crane, 2010) has cooked up another confection filled with family secrets coming to light in the Midwest. After her mother, Adele, dies suddenly, Grace Alban returns to the Minnesota mansion she grew up in, with her teenage daughter, Amity, in tow. While going through her mother’s possessions, Grace is shocked to discover love letters written to Adele by a writer named David Coleville, Grace’s father’s best friend, who killed himself back in the 1950s, on the same night Grace’s aunt Fate disappeared. When Grace and Matthew Parker, the handsome minister who presided over her mother’s funeral, discover Coleville’s unpublished novel, they find it to be a thinly veiled account of his time spent at Alban House, his burgeoning love affair with Adele, and a mysterious lady in white haunting the grounds. Grace is further shocked when an ambitious reporter shows up at Adele’s funeral with Aunt Fate, who is very much alive but not entirely sane, and who may be a threat to Grace and her daughter. Magic and mystery intertwine in Webb’s engaging midwestern gothic. --Kristine Huntley --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.


Spooky mansion? Check. Secret passages? Check. Dark and stormy nights? Haunting family secrets? Creepy characters? Check, check, check. This second novel by Minnesota Book Award-winning writer Wendy Webb has all the elements of a downright haunting story-and it is. But there's also romance along the way to provide relief...Another great novel here. Be prepared to be scared-and entertained.
