    I never expected that a novel written in 1907 could be a page-turner, but this was! The Mayor is running for Governor and his wife is troubled about something but he doesn't know what. He hires a companion for her, and asks the companion to help him get to the bottom of itd the answer is a twist I didn't see coming. This story also involves a haunted house, lost money, kooky old sisters living next door, secret rooms and a secret code. It felt like I was reading an adult version of my favorite c [...]

    I recently bought this book and could not put it down. The narrator is hired by the mayor of her town to become a companion to his wife, who has recently become haunted by some great fear. He asks that she attempt also to discover what is troubling his wife so he can mend it, if possible. Usually I am good at guessing mysteries, but this one baffled me right to the end. Highly recommended!

    A typical Gothic mystery, complete with companion hired to stay with nervous wife in her husband's absence, all in a mysterious old house. It can't quite be called romantic suspense, but leans that way. For the most part the voice and style of this novel are very reader-friendly. I listened to an audiobook version, though there is a graphic cipher and it helps to see it. Fortunately, if you do go the audiobook route, you can find a copy of this book online and look up those pages.

    Up until the last few chapters I was prepared to give this book four stars. Unfortunately, I didn't care much for the plot resolution, myself. It is a good read nonetheless. Additionally, AKG's influence on Agatha Christie's style is quite apparent, which I found to be a special treat!

    Missing money, strange old neighbor ladies, servants and politics, and secret ccodes. Not my favorite of Anna Katherine Green, but not too bad.

    Woman assigned to care for mayors wife. Two odd old ladies next door. House haunted. Turns out mayors wife had married their nephew when she was sixteen and run away. Too unrealistic.
