The House of Velvet and GlassPaperback - 2012
Author of "The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane", returns with a new historical novel set in 1915 Boston, about a young woman poised on the cusp of a tumultuous new century, torn between loss and love. Sybil is drawn into visits to a table-turning medium, where she tries to make contact with her lost relatives in the afterworld. She then encounters Ben, an old family friend who lost his first wife to illness, and to whom Sybil was attracted years ago. As Ben and Sibyl must work together to solve a harrowing mystery, the long-simmering spark reignites, and they realize that there may be something more magical between them than a crystal ball on the medium's table.
