TITLE: THE GHOST ORCHID
AUTHOR: CAROL GOODMAN
Ellis Brooks is staying at Bosco, a beautiful artist's retreat to write a novel about an event that took place there in it's early days. An event involving three dead children, their grieving mother, a medium, a seance with a tragic ending and a fourth child gone missing.
But once she's started her writing it appears that those events aren't as distant as they should be. The house and garden seem to be holding memories of the events and those seem to be affecting, not just Ellis, but all the residents.
As the past and present become ever more intertwined, it appears that Ellis is holding the keys to solving past mysteries and laying restless ghosts to bed. A task not without danger.
Great, thrilling read. Goodman is back to her best.
