"An enjoyable and a touching love story out of the ordinary."
The legend has it that Maiden Castle was haunted with the
ghost of Serena. A young woman that had been forced to wed,
murdered her husband on her wedding night, then plummeted
to the bottom of the stairs, breaking her neck, when she
tried to flee.
For 500 years Serena has been content to have the castle
all to herself. Over the years she has had to get rid of
those that dared to disturb her peace, especially the male
gender. She was protective of the castle but mostly of the
blooming cherry tree in the garden.
Alex Woding had stayed one night in the castle ruins when
he was ten years old and had an encounter with a star
shower and a ghost. This caused his fascination with
astronomy and with the crumbling ruins of Maiden Castle.
Thus in manhood he has the castle restored and with an all
male crew to run his household, he moves in.
Serena will not put up with so many members of the opposite
sex staying in her castle...even that Woding man that she
soon realizes is the little boy that she had scared in his
youth. Only now he is a grown man and possibly even
different from any other man she has ever known. What's a
ghost to do with this situation?
This is a very enjoyable book! Serena's ghostly antics to
rid the castle of the male occupants were quite humorous,
which eased the seriousness of the story. OF MIDNIGHT BORN
is very enjoyable and a touching love story out of the
ordinary. A highly recommended read so close to Halloween.
