"In the Manor of the Ghost" is set in 1875 and tells the story of Kaitlin who lost her husband and child in tragic circumstances. She starts a new life in Minnesota as a voluntary teacher of children. One little boy in particular steals her heart. Devlin Clayborne desperately wants his child to be happy, but when his wife died his son stopped speaking. Devlin sees the bond between Kaitlin and his child. He hopes if he makes Kaitlin his wife he will break down the barriers and learn to love again. Neither Kaitlin or Devlin know the terrible secrets they keep from each other. Secrets that bring misunderstanding and conflict to their relationship with the child is caught in the middle. This book has many underlying, mysterious and secret sub-plots. Ms Pinson weaves the story together seamlessly. My attention was caught so I couldn't really relax until I'd reached the end. Knowing Kaitlin's problems provoked empathy, but Devlin's thoughts were not so clear. Gossip said he'd killed his wife. Unkind people called his servant "freaks". And was there really a ghost in the house? The intrigue and mystery come from unexpected directions, but through it all Kaitlin's love for Devlin's son shines through. I did wonder if her attraction for the father was due to the love for the son, but soon dismissed that thought. Kaitlin's love had been imprisoned inside her since the death of her family, now she had found a man and a child to love. Congratulations Ms Pinson. In the Manor of the Ghost is a book I would recommend to anyone who loves historicals, romances or mysteries. I look forward to reading more of your books.
