From the Publisher:
Wraxford Hall, a decaying mansion in the English countryside, has a sinister reputation. Once, a family disappeared there. And now Constance Langton has inherited this dark place as well as the mysteries surrounding it.
 
Having grown up in a house marked by the death of her sister, Constance is no stranger to mystery, secrets, and the dark magic around us. Her father was distant. Her mother was in perpetual morning for her lost child. In a desperate atempt to coax her mother back to health, Constance took her to a seance hoping she would find supernatural comfort. But tragic consequences followed, leaving her alone in the world-- alone with Wraxford Hall. Saddled with this questionable bequest, she must find the truth at the heart of all these disappearances, apparitions, betrayal, blackmail, and villainy, even if it costs her life.
 
John Harwood's second novel delivers on the great promise proven by his first with this gripping mystery set in the heart of Victorian England.
Annotation:
An exquisitely crafted Victorian ghost story, THE SEANCE tells the story of an English orphan, Constance Langton, who inherits a haunted mansion, and finds herself calling upon the afterlife in an attempt to clear the besmirched name of Nell Wraxford, the former lady of the house, who was accused of murdering her own husband.

Praise

"John Harwood's elegant new novel, THE SEANCE...is a solid, old-fashioned gothic involving several generations of reclusive, obsessive squires and a mouldering old manor house set in the midst of an encroaching, reputedly haunted forest." - Laura Miller 03/16/2009

"[John] Harwood invokes the hoariest clichés of supernatural suspense, from stormy nights to haunted houses, and effortlessly makes them his own. The novel's voice, too, is superbly crafted, accurate for the period but never self-consciously antique." (starred review) 12/02/2008
