The Dauntless Boy

A Novella by

There’s something strange about her new employer…

Francis Gold is haunted by a persistent, wailing specter who smells of rosewater, so he leads a secluded life in an empty house that’s more like his own mausoleum. When his loyal, lone manservant asks him to hire a maid, Francis reluctantly agrees with one condition: she should never venture above the ground floor.

The inquisitive new maid doesn’t heed his instructions.

One night, she finds Francis sleepwalking above-stairs and he gains an enchanting, truculent ally. If he is resolute enough, he may find solace and love after years of agitated, self-imposed isolation.

But there’s still the matter of that sweet-smelling specter: local rumor says she’s a murdered maid, and one of the Gold patriarchs did it…
