"Combines the best of Gothic and reincarnation"
Mary Adams was a widow for only a short time when she
married Dr. Alexander Dominican so she could act as a
mother to his child. His wife died recently as well from
cancer but before her death, they saved the child's life by
doing a cesarean section. In return for marrying Alex, he
would pay off the fifty thousand in debts her late husband
left behind when he died.
Mary moves into Marchbrook Manor, a medieval house in
the heart of Kentucky. Once she steps through the door,
strange things begin happening to her. She has visions of
a medieval woman and her husband, a great lord in England
of 1327. In addition to her visions someone in the house
is trying to drive Mary away by playing cruel and malicious
tricks on her. When she tells Alex about the incidents he
doesn't believe her, which hurts Mary a great deal because
she has come to love him.
TANGLED MEMORIES is a wonderful gothic romance complete
with a foreboding castle, a helpful housekeeper, strange
visions, and an insane antagonist. Told in the first
person from Mary's point of view, readers feel the same
fears that the heroine experiences. Jan Scarbrough has
written a modern day gothic that will delight fans of this
growing sub genre.
