About Miramont’s Ghost
- Paperback: 334 pages
- Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (February 1, 2015)
Miramont Castle, built in 1897 and mysteriously abandoned three years later, is home to many secrets. Only one person knows the truth: Adrienne Beauvier, granddaughter of the Comte de Challembelles and cousin to the man who built the castle.
Clairvoyant from the time she could talk, Adrienne’s visions show her the secrets of those around her. When her visions begin to reveal dark mysteries of her own aristocratic French family, Adrienne is confronted by her formidable Aunt Marie, who is determined to keep the young woman silent at any cost. Marie wrenches Adrienne from her home in France and takes her to America, to Miramont Castle, where she keeps the girl isolated and imprisoned. Surrounded by eerie premonitions, Adrienne is locked in a life-or-death struggle to learn the truth and escape her torment.
Reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, this hauntingly atmospheric tale is inspired by historical research into the real-life Miramont Castle in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
“You might want to keep the lights on when you read Elizabeth Hall’s chilling debut, Miramont’s Ghost, in which a young girl who’s clairvoyant winds up exiled and imprisoned in the Miramont Castle in Colorado. Set in nineteenth-century France, this is sure to be a mesmerizing and haunting read!” —RT Book Reviews, “Forewords”
