Jessamine Publisher's Summary
A haunting work from Shani Struthers, author of the Amazon number one best seller, The Haunting of Highdown Hall.
"The dead of night, Jess, I wish they'd leave me alone."
Jessamin Wade's husband is dead - a death she feels wholly responsible for. As a way of coping with her grief, she keeps him alive in her imagination - talking to him everyday, laughing with him, remembering the good times they had together. She thinks she will hear him better if she goes somewhere quieter, away from the hustle and bustle of her hometown, Brighton. Her destination is Glenelk in the Highlands of Scotland, a region her grandfather hailed from and the subject of a much-loved painting from her childhood.
Arriving in the village late at night, it is a bleak and forbidding place. However, the house she is renting - Skye Croft - is warm and welcoming. Quickly, she meets the locals. Her landlord, Fionnlagh Maccaillin, is an ex-army man with obvious and not so obvious injuries. Maggie, who runs the village shop, is also an enigma, startling her with her strange insights. But it is Stan she instantly connects with. Maccaillin's grandfather and a frail, old man, he is grief-stricken from the recent loss of his beloved Beth.
All four are caught in the past. All four are unable to let go. Their lives entwining in mysterious ways, can they help each other to move on, or will they always belong to the ghosts that haunt them?
