"An exciting ghostly historical romance that never slows down"
Madeleine knows she is a nothing, just a mere daughter of a
country doctor. Justin is one of the leading nobles in the
area. However, somehow she and Justin, Lord de Harcourt
meet, begin to see each other, fall in love, and marry in
six weeks. Now she heads with her new spouse to his home at
foreboding Steying Hall.
Her arrival at her husband's home seems eerie to the
frightened woman as she begins seeing ghosts, especially of
victims of Justin's ancestors. The visits while awake and
asleep increase when Justin goes off to work for his
government and assist the French nobility escaping the
terror. When he returns, he scoffs at her sightings until
he realizes that someone, living or dead, wants to murder
his wife. Justin willingly risks his own life to try to
keep his beloved safe.
Penelope Neri provides her readers with an exciting ghostly
historical romance that never slows down until the truth is
revealed. The story line haunts the reader with its Gothic
late eighteenth century isolated feel as the audience
spookily hears the MOONSHADOW with every turn of the page.
