“An unusual Christmas story.”
Five Star Review on Amazon by John V.
Henry Devereaux, a wealthy railroad magnate takes a bride, Anna, who is but a young lady and finds herself in her husband’s grand home, alone and scared, especially during his protracted absences. The characters are wonderfully drawn and contribute to the air of mystery and suspense that arise from voices and shadows that Anna fears, telling her she is not welcome in her own home. She seeks help from Henry’s Aunt Violet, Jackson, the groundskeeper, and other individuals you may recognize from Joy Ross Davis’s other works. Anna learns to face her fears head on and cope with misfortunes that test her sanity and happiness. This is a delightful paranormal Christmas story that is both imaginative and intriguing.
