Deborah Grabien lives in San Francisco, California.
When British folk musician Ringan Laine receives a lifetime lease on a cottage in lieu of payment for renovations done on a Somerset manor house, he has no idea the place is haunted. That changes quickly when ghostly figures begin to appear. Ringan and his lover, Penny, investigate the cottage's history and determine that the ghosts are a weaver and a factory maid, young lovers murdered in 1817. Only a musical exorcism by his group, the Broomfield Hill Quartet, will let the lovers rest and allow Ringan to claim his property. In this first in a series that will explore the ghosts of characters in folk ballads, Grabien effectively mixes the ghost story with the contemporary drama. Each chapter opens with part of the ballad of the weaver and the factory maid. Nicely incorporating period details and background on folk music, this involving tale will appeal especially to ghost-story fans and to readers of Sharyn McCrumb's Songcatcher (2001) and Erin Hart's Haunted Ground [BKL My 1 03].
