Praise
"Lush descriptions and an intricate plot drive this intense tale, which straddles the lines between magical realism, fantasy, ghost stories, and horror, with a touch of romance and classic glamour. The result is something rich, strange, and utterly fascinating."
"Richly woven, with depth and swift plotting that will leave readers clamoring for the sequels."
From the Publisher
Annotation The first book in a trilogy, this compelling ghost story begins when 16-year-old Sarah Parsons's grandmother dies. Having grown up in Seattle and spent no time with her grandmother, Sarah is amazed by Amber House, the family's Maryland home that has been with them for almost a dozen generations. Seduced by the mansion, Sarah discovers that she can see into the past through visions of what happened in the house. Fascinated, Sarah hopes to solve the mystery of where her grandmother's diamonds went. Helping her are two boys, sensitive Jackson who knew her grandmother well, and Richard, an attractive guy whose father is a senator. Soon, the visions uncover secrets that threaten to hurt those she loves, and Sarah isn't sure who to trust. Will she make the right choices in time?
Editors Note "I was sixteen the first time my grandmother died . . ."Sarah Parsons has never seen Amber House, the grand Maryland estate that's been in her family for three centuries. She's never walked its hedge maze nor found its secret chambers; she's never glimpsed the shades that haunt it, nor hunted for lost diamonds in its walls.But all of that is about to change. After her grandmother passes away, Sarah and her friend Jackson decide to search for the diamonds--and the house comes alive. She discovers that she can see visions of the house's past, like the eighteenth-century sea captain who hid the jewels, or the glamorous great-grandmother driven mad by grief. She grows closer to both Jackson and a young man named Richard Hathaway, whose family histories are each deeply entwined with her own. But when the visions start to threaten the person she holds most dear, Sarah must do everything she can to get to the bottom of the house's secrets, and stop the course of history before it is cemented forever.
