WIDOW'S WALK by Robert Barclay
Publisher Harper Collins/Wm. Morrow, April 9, 2014
In the spirit of
The Notebook and The Time Traveller’s Wife comes Robert Barclay’s
haunting and romantic novel of passion, destiny, loss and an eternal love
that will bring two people together across time.
A love beyond time and as deep as the sea…
His name is Garrett Richmond and he has always wanted to live by the ocean.
So when the opportunity to buy and renovate the old house known as Seaside
arrived, he leapt at the chance. Never mind that his friends and family
thought he was crazy, he knew he could return this lonely mansion—worn by
time, wind, and neglect—to its former beauty. But Seaside is more than just
a project; it is a spot that had called to him his entire life.
And then one night he sees her…
Her name is Constance Elizabeth Canfield and she tells him Seaside has been
her home for over 170 years. But Constance is no ghost; she claims that she
has been somehow magically trapped between this life and the next. Garrett
has trouble believing her outlandish story. And yet there is something about
Constance that seems from another time.
Soon, this otherworldly woman and flesh-and-blood man share a closeness they
cannot deny. But just as their passion begins to bloom, Constance’s presence
starts mysteriously fading away. Is their love doomed? Or is it strong
enough to transcend time and even death itself?
