Overview

"Is he, or isn't he . . . a man?

Young, spirited Anne Stewart has left Scotland for the seclusion of Wyndham House on the tip of Cornwall, a house rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of its former occupants.

When dashing Captain Gavin Christopher enters Anne's bedroom window claiming to be Wyndham's rightful owner, will Anne find her soul-mate, or will this intruder prove to be something other than mortal?

A return to the traditional gothic genre . . .

In a time when women were thought to need the controlling hand of the men who would best them, Anne Stewart finds that dreams can come to life, and that the human spirit will fight for the chance to find true and everlasting love — no matter the consequences.

    GOTHIC ! For a reader who grew up on gothics, and still try to find them wherever I can, this book hit the gothic historical spot.
    Anne Stewart is a Scotswoman who has to leave her home because of the death of her parents, and moves to the craggy sea cliffs of Cornwall, the land of her ancient enemies. There she hopes to find peace, and a getaway from her former fiance, now in France and out of touch. What she finds is a dashing sea captain who comes through her window, saying he owns the house. Captain Gavin Christopher is stunned to find it occupied after his absence.
    And so the beautiful romance begins between two people who have been hurt, and have to heal, and can maybe do so in each others' presence - - - when there are several complications hindering a relationship and that elusive peace. For instance, that question posed in the book description here of "Is he, or isn't he... mortal?" This makes for a slight twist on the historical, and I liked it a lot. It kept me wondering and hoping. It kept me reading.
    I was left completely satisfied with this unusual book's ending, and felt a peace of my own that I sorely needed that reaffirmed that true romance is alive and well in the world.

    I was babysitting my grandchildren who were watching The Advent


    I was babysitting my grandchildren who were watching The Adventures of Tintin. I sat at the kitchen table in full view of this beautifully done movie and despaired. How was I going to read Linda T/S's, The House of Dark Shadows with strong competition from the TV. From word one, page one I started falling deeper into the story until, well, I wasn't a very good babysitter and I'll have to rent Tintin some other time. I'm an unabashed fan of Linda's. Love her. Although this is a departure from her normal vampire/were stories, I actually liked it even better. I can't help but give her six stars, well ookay, could only click on 5. The first thing that struck me is the descriptive passages of both inward feelings and outward surroundings. A real pro captures the genre here. Enjoy.
