A Supernatural Romantic Adventure set in a "1950's English Village" kind of setting.
"The people of this village are dangerous when they're afraid. They're not afraid now, but they frighten very easily. Especially if they think there're sea people around."
Skipford would be a typical English village from a simpler time. A time when the telephone was a booth down the street and everyone looked out for everybody else. It would be, except for two small problems. First, it isn't England, it isn't even our world. It's in the realm of Hayteswood. Second, the inhabitants live in fear. You see, the old stories say that on some nights the sea releases her dead to come ashore and take lives from the living in return for the lives they lost.
Not everybody believes this.
If it were so, then Gabriella Sheldrake would have had a different reception when she washed into the life of Silas Engelton, rector of the Westerton School for Young Ladies.
If it were so, then Jeremiah Parkes would have a different story when he washed into the life of Abigail Stemp, the widow of a fisherman lost some years ago.
If it weren't so, then nobody would have anything to fear. Problem is, old stories hold old truths.
Hayteswood Supernatural Pulps are a set of stand-alone novels that only have the world in common. They set in different places at different times with different characters, which means you can read any of them without needing to have read any other. Enjoy this one. It's a sweet read.
