This story takes place in mid 19th century Scotland where Martise St James travels from Virginia just after the Civil War to Castle Creeghan in the Scottish Highlands where her best friend, Lady Mary Creeghan, has died mysteriously. Martise seeks the truth of her friend's death and she seeks the emerald that she knows Mary held that will allow Martise to save her beloved home in Virginia. Captivated by the handsome Lord Creeghan, a man of dark secrets, she stays though he repeatedly warns her that she must leave. In her wanderings, Martise discovers many other strange doings about the castle and its crypts below ground that frighten her. But she is committed to staying no matter the risk to her person, her life or her heart.
Graham/Drake draws you into the life of the castle, its mysterious past and the times as only she can do. I really only dropped it a half star as the action was not as continuous or as breathtaking as some of her other stories. I did not like the cartoon illustrations that were in the book as I thought they made the hero look ordinary and the heroine very young, all of which were inconsistent with Graham's excellent portrayals.
You will enjoy this one and if you're a Graham fan, you will not be disappointed.
