 Marielle has married a widower with two young children and is moving into the house that he shared with his first wife. Her family's old southern hospitality house located in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia. As if that weren't enough, the dead wife's grandmother still lives within the house; a 90-year old woman full of vim and vinegar!

Marielle thinks she can handle living in the house without difficulty. It was best for the children! That is until she hears about the alleged ghost, and the curse upon the house, Holly Oak.

A wonderful novel mixing today with Civil War era history.

Can Marielle make it work living in the house where her husband once lived with his deceased wife? Are there ghosts lingering the halls and stairways of Holly Oak?
Or is the house really the cursed place Marielle has been hearing about?

This is a novel I simply could not put down, sitting up all night to read it! At times goose bumps, at others reaching for the box of tissues...I give this book...

...Five Stars and... Thumbs Up Award!

Suitable for teens and older, this is a great read!
