Sarah Bennett doesn’t remember the night her mother tumbled down the stairs at Bennett House, despite allegedly witnessing the fatal fall. There was talk of foul play, dark whispers, and sidelong glances, all aimed at Sarah, prompting her family to send her to The Laurels, an exclusive asylum in San Francisco, under a cloud of suspicion. Now, on the one-year anniversary of her mother’s murder, Sarah has been summoned home. Convinced of her innocence, she returns to Bennett House, hoping to put the broken pieces of her life back together. But when another murder occurs shortly after her arrival, Sarah once again finds herself a suspect, as she is drawn into a web of suspicion and lies. In order to clear her name, Sarah must remember what happened the fateful night her mother died. But as she works to regain her memory, the real murderer watches, ready to kill again to protect a dark family secret.
Four Boundless Stars
I really enjoyed The Spirit of Grace. It was not what I was expecting, but sometimes that can be a good thing.
Sarah is sent to an asylum after her mother dies. People in her home town think she is to blame. Her father brings her home and once there so many crazy things begin happening. She finds herself wrapped up in quite a disturbing chain of events. I can definitely say I was not expecting the ending.
This book was full of mystery, action, and intrigue. I thought it would be more of a ghost story, but it wasn't. It was really good and written very well.
