Add to Wish List
Declan Fitzgerald had always been the family maverick, but
even he couldn't understand his impulse to buy a
dilapidated mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans. All
he knew was that ever since he first saw Manet Hall, he'd
been enchanted-and obsessed-with it. So when the
opportunity to buy the house comes up, Declan jumps at the
chance to live out a dream.
Determined to restore Manet Hall to its former splendor,
Declan begins the daunting renovation room by room,
relying on his own labor and skills. But the days spent in
total isolation in the empty house take a toll. He is
seeing visions of days from a century past, and
experiencing sensations of terror and nearly unbearable
grief-sensations not his own, but those of a stranger.
Local legend has it that the house is haunted, and with
every passing day Declan's belief in the ghostly presence
Only the companionship of alluring Angelina Simone can
distract him from the mysterious happenings in the house,
but Angelina too has her own surprising connection to
Manet Hall-a connection that will help Declan uncover a
secret that's been buried for a hundred years.
