Publisher's Summary

Ophelia Castellan will never be just another girl at Elsinore Academy. Seeing ghosts is not a skill prized in future society wives. Even when she takes her pills, the bean sidhe beckon, reminding her of a promise to her dead mother.

Now, in the wake of the Headmaster's sudden death, the whole academy is in turmoil, and Ophelia can no longer ignore the fae. Especially once she starts seeing the Headmaster's ghosts - two of them - on the school grounds. Her only confidante is Dane, the Headmaster's grieving son. Yet even as she gives more of herself to him, Dane spirals toward a tragic fate dragging Ophelia, and the rest of Elsinore, with him.

You know how this story ends. Yet even in the face of certain death, Ophelia has a choice to make and a promise to keep.

Can Not Recommend!!!!

After reading Dot Hutchinson's second published novel, "The Butterfly Garden," I wanted to read her other and first published work. What a disappointment. This is a work that romanticizes death and suicide with poetic and flowery language. I found myself rolling my eyes throughout its telling and was glad when it finally ended. I wished that I had returned it.

Overall disappointing

I loved the idea of this story much more than the execution of it. The ending left too much hanging. The main female character was weak and seemed to have no mind of her own. Maybe that was the point but I found it highly annoying. The male counterpart was abusive and not much more in control of himself. The "fae" aspect of this story seemed to be a wholly different story that didn't really make sense. Overall Not happy

Slow & Dull!

The only thing I found even remotely enjoyable about this book was the narrator. She's dead, then she's crazy, then she's a ghost.
3 hours in and I give up - much better elsewhere!
