Blurb:  

"There, Miss, that be Ganymede House in the distance," says the driver of her carriage as newly impoverished Sarah Scott gets her first glimpse of the magnificent house in Yorkshire, England, where she will live as tutor for the two children of widower Oliver Grayson.  But, unknown to the young woman, she is about to venture into a bleak home where the children are silent, the master morose, the servants suspicious and the family history forbidding.

And, as she begins to take on the responsibility for the children’s education, Sarah finds herself caught up in the hostile spirit that permeates Ganymede-- the portrait of Oliver's wife, Rosamunda, that is locked away in an unused bedroom; the mysterious scent of roses in rooms where no one has entered; the mystery surrounding Rosamunda's death and the banishment of the mother's imprint on the children and the manor.  Slowly Sarah comes to realize that evil inhabits the house and that she no longer is an outsider to the family--what stalks and touches Ganymede now touches her.


Behind the Scene: I like playing the "what if?" game and so, a few years ago when I was driving over a bridge and saw an old stone mansion on a cliff I thought, "What if that house was in Victorian England and what if a mysterious family lived in it? And what if it was haunted and had a ghost? And those questions became the beginnings of my Gothic mystery, Lost Roses Of Ganymede House.
