Kathy spent much of her childhood in Cleveland, Ohio at her favorite place: the library. For the past 20 years, she has lived in Denver, Colorado, where she began writing a few books of her own.
The Mirror’s Secret was born during a seminar on Women in the Civil War in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where she was conducting research for an earlier unpublished novel. The spirit of a Civil War officer who still inhabits the bed and breakfast where she stayed was the inspiration for this story.
In addition to her fiction projects, she is writing Accidental Adventures, a nonfiction book filled with many travel experiences she and her husband have shared as they visited over 100 countries around the world during their thirty years together. It details the stories of unintended “accidental” adventures that range from getting lost to unusual foods to lengthy hospital stays in foreign countries.
Kathy’s message to her readers: Kind people and fascinating adventures await you everywhere, from your own neighborhood to the other side of the world. Don’t be afraid to explore them.
Descripción del libro
When Ellie Michaels inherits a Pennsylvania bed & breakfast rich in Civil War history, she assumes the strange happenings at the Ivy Garden Inn are brought about by the spirit of her recently deceased aunt. Then she becomes acquainted with the inn's most loyal guest: the spirit of a Union Army doctor who continues to inhabit the house over 150 years after his death. Dr. Grant Alexander's spirit still awaits the arrival of more wounded men who need his medical attention in the house that became a battlefield hospital in 1863.
Ellie believes that spirits of the departed walk among us, but she never expects to fall in love with one. She hears Grant's voice and feels his touch but can only see his face through the antique mirror on the parlor wall.
A man trapped in the past. A woman born in the wrong century. Can they bend the barriers of time to achieve the perfect union they both desire?
