"It was to be a summer of storms." A dark supernatural tale of love, obsession and power. At the haunted auctions of Thornhill and Swift, where artefacts of the ghostly and the macabre are bought and sold, we learn of the statue entitled: "The Girl with the Roses". *** Charlotte Salt has always dreamt of marrying for love, but when she receives a proposal, she realises that romance isn't always the deciding factor in the Victorian marriage market. Married to the eligible but secretive George Avery, she finds herself cut off from her family and friends when her husband takes her to live in his isolated Derbyshire home. Trapped in a loveless marriage, she finds her thoughts turning towards her brother's friend the handsome Charles Jameson. In failing health and increasingly troubled by strange sights and sounds, she cannot help recalling Jameson's mysterious warning: "be on your guard." What danger did he foresee? As dark forces surround her, she contemplates the fate of her predecessor. What happened to the first Mrs Avery? In a summer of storms, can anyone save her from the shadows? A Gothic novella from the author of 12 Ghostly Tales
