It is a find of inestimable value for Karen Holloway. The battered manuscript she holds in her hand—written in the nineteenth century and bearing the mysterious attribution "Ismene"—could prove a boon to the eager young English professor's career. But Karen's search for the author's true identity is carrying her into the gray shadows of the past, to places fraught with danger and terror. For the deeper she delves into Ismene's strange tale of gothic horror, the more she is haunted by the suspicion that the long-dead author was writing the truth . . . and that even now she is guiding Karen's investigation, leading her to terrible secrets hidden behind the cold walls of houses of stone.

If someone had written a book just for me, this would be it. When I finished reading it the first time, I went back to the beginning and started it all over. Old houses, old books, wonderful stuff.

Karen Holloway, a young English lit professor is given the opportunity of a lifetime. Her close friend, Simon, has procured a novel by an obscure 19th century gothic novel, written by a woman. Karen is determined to find out the truth about the woman behind the mask.This is one of Barbara Michaels best novels. The characters are fully developed and likeable. Although you know a romance will develop between Karen and someone, it is up in the air which man is a hero and which is a villain.What I especially like about Barbara Michaels is how she uses characters of various ages, not just twenty-somethings. This is a novel to read again and again.
