Some families hide their darkest secrets, others bury them... After the sudden death of her father, Kate's cold-hearted grandmother treats her like a lowly servant inside her isolated estate. Falling in love with a young stable hand only complicates matters when she discovers her rival for his affections is Clara - the one person who has treated her with kindness since her ordeal began. Now Clara will stop at nothing to eliminate the competition even if it means that her friend has to die. But, according to the gravestone in the family plot, Kate Embry is already dead.
he writing is strong, the locale creepy and there are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader interested late into the night. The Grave of Katherine Embry is reminiscent of an abandoned Jane Eyre who befriends the below stairs staff of Downton Abbey for solace and mystery. It was a lovely book to read at night. A recommended title to those who enjoy traditional Gothic novels. ~ Library Systems.
