The Grave of Katherine Embry
by Renee Ross
Born March 27 1875 – Died April 30 1875
For nearly two decades the cemetery at Windcliff has hidden a dark family secret . . .
In the spring of 1890, a young girl – whose life has already been marred by tragedy– must leave the only home she’s ever known and travel to her maternal grandparents’ estate on the coast of New Hampshire.
Expecting a haven of love and protection, Kate encounters a bed-ridden man who denies her existence and a cold-hearted woman who puts her to work as a scullery maid.
The only bright spot in her miserable life is an unexpected friendship with another serving girl named Clara. Their mutually bleak situation quickly develops into a sister-like bond that seems unbreakable. That is, until they find themselves in love with the same young stable hand.
Desperate to understand why she’s being treated so heartlessly, Kate begins to unravel a web of deception that ultimately forces her to accept that her entire life has been a lie.
