Old Lynnford Carstairs knew his time was running out; knew that he had to provide for his headstrong niece, Felicity; knew that only the fear of losing the Carstairs manor house would bring her to her senses. And so he tracked down Lynn Carstairs, son of a distant branch of the family, and left everything to him and Felicity - with the proviso that they marry within the year.
Lynn's arrival at Carstairs couldn't have been more poorly timed for Kiffin Pope, who needed the house for purposes the Carstairs never dreamed of.
That Felicity and Lynn should stumble on the secret was inevitable; was it also inevitable that Felicity would perish slowly and painfully like the ancient ancestress who was said to haunt the estate...?
This paperback is in very good condition with minor cover rubbing.
