“Winfield masterfully reveals how the complicated lives of the people in Corsica are intertwined. In the first half of the narrative, she paints a rich picture of the characters’ personalities. She also establishes a strong sense of setting, especially as it involves the atmosphere of the house. Winfield draws readers in with her use of details… deftly shifting from a character-driven story to a plot-driven, action-filled mystery. Winfield explores themes about the nature of good and evil, of right and wrong. With unusual but appealing characters, she keeps readers deeply engaged throughout her eccentric, compelling novel.”
—Maria Siano, Foreword/Clarion Review (Five Stars)
Haverford House, an intriguing novel by author Katherine Winfield, takes place on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. A suspenseful yet uplifting tale, Winfield weaves the characters into a colorful tapestry with the small Eastern Shore town as the backdrop. Winfield takes the reader on a journey of family dynamics and the sometimes deadly consequences of the need for love and power. The idea for the book began with a rumor about a local house that was haunted.
When Josh and Libby Langston move from Baltimore to a small fishing town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, they’ll soon find out that the sleepy town of Corsica has some deep-rooted secrets. Thinking that she has finally found the perfect place to call home, Libby will discover her new dream house has a troubled past that is about to be awakened.
After a Haverford descendant, dead for over a century, sends Libby cryptic messages for help, Libby decides to seek the aid of the local townspeople. However, as the hidden history begins to be uncovered, and a suspicious death at the house twenty years ago comes into focus, Libby will learn that sometimes the past is better left buried.
