Aline was raised in a small village, where she worked as an assistant at the schoolhouse and had few prospects for the future. Then everything changed. A woman named Mrs. Rosell, who worked as a housekeeper at an elegant mansion, came to the village, seeking a companion for her employer's sister, Orielle. Aline accepts the job, hoping to move up in the world. Orielle turns out to be a kind girl who soon becomes Aline's friend, despite their class differences. Orielle has been unable to walk since the fire that killed her parents, and her older brother, Orlando, hopes Aline can motivate his sister to walk again. When Aline begins to fall in love with Orlando, she knows it is a love that can never be. Orlando is rich, and Aline is poor. What could he ever see in her? But when Aline's dream comes true, and Orlando says he loves her, she never imagined that they would awaken a bitter ghost who is determined to end their happiness. I highly recommend this book to teens who enjoy a love story combined with a supernatural tale.
