The House of Velvet and Glass

Katherine Howe

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd

Format: Paperback

1915, and the ghosts of the dead haunt a wealthy Boston family ...Sibyl Allston is devastated by the recent deaths of her mother and sister aboard the Titanic. Hoping to heal her wounded heart, she seeks solace in the parlour of a medium who promises to contact her lost loved ones. But Sibyl - overcome by visions - finds herself in a strange new world where she can never trust that what she sees or hears is real. Believing she may be the victim of fraud, she turns to psychology professor Benton Jones. As the pair seek to uncover the mystery of her visions, Sibyl and Benton are drawn into the opium dens of Boston's Chinatown and the upscale salons of fashionable society, where sinister mediums and occult practices are rife ...The House of Velvet and Glass is a compelling story of dark forces and beliefs as well as the redeeming powers of love and kindness.
