Death in the Castle

A novel by

The ancient, brooding castle was known as Starborough. John Blayne, wealthy young American, was determined to buy it and move it stone by stone to his estate in Connecticut. But even though impoverished, the aristocratic owners, Sir Richard Sedgley and Lady Mary, were loath to sell. The castle was their obsession. Lady Mary believed it harbored spirits of past ages who would help save it from demolition. As for Sir Richard, he was haunted by a secret guilt that finally drove him into reliving a tragic episode of an earlier century. It fell to the lovely Kate to try to reconcile the Sedgleys and Blayne, the past and the present. Ostensibly a servant and granddaughter of the elderly butler Wells, this strange, enchanting girl revealed that she had qualities far beyond those of a simple maid.
