Rebecca’s Ghost


When a young woman with the gift of sight is charged with murder, she makes a devastating decision, destroying any chance for happiness. Elizabeth’s greatest fear has come true; the villagers think she is bewitched and the music from her glass armonica can wake the dead. Thrust into a household where a ghostly image roams the halls, will her secret past get her tossed penniless onto the streets?


Lord Ablington is celibate. Madness runs in his family. Long devoted to his wife’s memory, when the enchanting Elizabeth disrupts his orderly household he is torn between feelings of betrayal and the new awakening of his desires. Will Philip’s self-loathing destroy them both, or can Elizabeth’s devotion unlock his heart?







What a truly great romance. It reminded me in many ways of a Victoria Holt book; one of my favorite authors when I was young. An engaging story that was well developed. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book as much as this one.
