Former reporter Eleanor “Norrie” Harper can’t fathom her feelings of dread before starting a dream job - becoming director of Cliffside Manor, once owned by the wealthy Dare family, now turned into a retreat for artists and writers on the shore of Lake Superior. Then, within hours of her arrival, tragedy strikes - and she’s about to discover that she has every reason to be terrified. Soon sparks unexpectedly fly between Norrie and both Nathan Davidson, the curiously old-school physician living on the grounds, and one of the visiting fellows, dashing nature photographer Richard Banks. But there’s little chance for romance, as Norrie and her guests become spooked by increasingly menacing occurrences that seem somehow linked to the deaths at Cliffside decades earlier of philanthropist Chester Dare and his daughters Chamomile and Temperance.

Amazing atmosphere! A wonderful trip to Lake Superior.

For a skeptic like me this story was sort of laughable but I so like Wendy's characters--especially her main characters--in all her books that I enjoyed this nevertheless.

Eleanor Harper becomes the director of a writer's retreat with a strange history. Almost immediately the retreat is thrown into chaos with a sudden death. While the story was a little inelegant at times, the history and supernatural aspects were interesting.
