Book Description

If you lost someone you loved, what would you pay to bring them back from the dead?

Old Marsh, the gardener at Belerion Hall, warned the Villiers girl about the old ruins along the seacliffs. "Never go in, miss. Never say a prayer at its door. If you are angry, do not seek revenge by the Laughing Maiden stone, or at the threshold of the Tombs. There be those who listen for oaths and vows... What may be said in innocence and ire becomes flesh and blood in such places."

She was born Iris Catherine Villiers. She became Isis.

From childhood until her sixteenth year, Iris Villiers wandered the stone-hedged gardens and the steep cliffs along the coast of Cornwall near her ancestral home. Surrounded by the stern judgments of her grandfather - the Gray Minister - and the taunts of her cruel governess, Iris finds solace in her beloved brother who has always protected her. But when a tragic accident occurs from the ledge of an open window, Iris discovers that she possesses the ability to speak to the dead...

Be careful what you wish for... it just may find you.

5 of 5 Best Story I've Read in Ages October 30, 2009
Reviewer: Kat Bloomquist from Branford, CT United States  
Love this story!  What happens when you think you can get back what you lost?  Maybe not the outcome you're expecting.  A brilliantly written, haunting tale of a lonely little girl and the price paid for "getting what you wish for".  This story will stay with you for along time after you read it.  It will have an honored place on my bookshelf.
