“In this fast-paced, intensely spooky ghost story, William Francis has captured the spirit of the Roaring Twenties, from the glitz and glamour to the seamier underbelly. April’s investigation into the past brings up more than she had bargained for, both with what the dead have to offer and what the living have to reveal. You won’t be able to put it down!” – Jo Niederhoff, Manhattan Book Review
Who is the Lady of Ellerslie?
F. Scott Fitzgerald is hoping for a quiet retreat to write his next novel following The Great Gatsby. He and his wife Zelda rent a mansion in Edgemoor, Delaware known as Ellerslie. Their stay is anything but quiet. There is another guest staying at Ellerslie – a female spirit who roams the property.
Looking to sell Ellerslie, the owner hires April Ross, the only female student at the University of Delaware’s History Department, to research the estate’s history. It doesn’t take long before April realizes the true reason she was hired – to uncover the identity of the ghost. With the aid of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, April discovers the shocking and tragic events that lead to the Lady’s demise and why she and other spirits are not yet at peace.
