While helping Ruby Wilcox clean up the loft above their
shops, China comes upon a box of antique handcrafted lace
and old photographs. Following the discovery, she hears a
woman humming an old Scottish ballad and smells the
delicate scent of lavender....
Soon, strange happenings start to occur in Thyme and
Seasons: misplaced items, a ringing bell, and the
appearance of lavender sprigs in odd places. When a
customer mentions seeing a mysterious woman picking
flowers nearby and then suddenly disappearing, China must
finally admit what Ruby has always known--their building
is haunted. But by whom?
As China investigates, the tragic story of a woman in one
of the old photographs unfolds. Annie Laurie was a young
widow who'd lost both her husband and her child in the
same day. She manages to survive through her lace-making
business and finds happiness again only to have a
suspicious death overshadow her new life.
China delves into Annie's century-old mystery and
realizes that solving it could have unimaginable
repercussions in the here and now.
