The Bone Flower
In The Bone Flower, we meet Edward, a true gentleman living in Victorian London. Edward goes to a séance with some friends, where he meets the lovely Settie, a gypsy flower seller. They begin a love affair, but it ends in tragedy. Not long after, Edward meets Marisol and makes her his wife. Strange things begin to happen in and around their home. At times, it seems as if Marisol is possessed as well as their infant son. Edward knows he will have to return to Settie’s people if he is to ever stop this madness.
This is a fantastic Gothic ghost story set in one of my favorite time periods. It’s a classy ghost story, with just the right amount of atmosphere and subtle scares, without going for the shock factor. Daniel and Marisol were my favorite characters, no offense to Edward. Their love and strength for others was incredibly endearing. If you enjoy Victorian London, ghost stories, or Gothic mysteries, I highly recommend you add this to your reading list. Just maybe don’t read it at night when you’re alone, especially if you’ve wronged a loved one.
