Cover for a novel: This is the story: Six months after the tragic accident that claimed the lives of her young twin daughters, Andie Ridgemont and surviving daughter, twelve year old Alyssa, embark on a trip to stay to Andie’s hometown in rural Pennsylvania. They come across a long abandoned farmhouse thought to be haunted. Steve Catalano, a novelist who specializes in purportedly true ghost stories is also researching the place. The original inhabitants of the farmhouse, the Colliers, were a young family who built the home at the turn of the century and all died within a short time of one another. Not only does Andie feel an inexplicable force in the house, she sees things that cannot be. When she finds an old journal hidden on a carefully concealed closet shelf, she becomes convinced the house is meant to be hers. As restoration on the house begins, Andie and Steve Catalano begin a relationship through email. When he returns to Lambert, the connection between them is intense. Andie’s healing is not straightforward, but it does continue. During her first night in the restored home, she experiences a dream encounter that ties together past and present, leaving no doubt that she’s truly found her way home. Back cover copy: Six months after tragedy devastates their lives, Andie returns to her childhood home with her twelve year old daughter Alyssa. When she discovers the Collier House, a long-abandoned, ‘haunted’ farmhouse, Andie is drawn to it. Is it just the heart-rending story of the young Collier family she identifies with or something more? When she meets Steve Catalano, an author of books on haunted houses who’s researching the place, the attraction between them is intense, but Andie’s heart has been rendered relatively worthless since the accident that claimed the lives of her twins. She wants restoration of her life and of the house, but is it possible? ‘As a mother, I found myself sympathizing with Andie and shedding tears right along with her. As a woman, I found myself wanting to solve the mystery of the house as much as Andie did. Ms. Shoup has truly crafted a masterpiece.’ –Romance at Heart ‘A wonderful story of recovering and learning to love again.’ –Romance Readers At Heart ‘Jane Shoup writes from her heart allowing the reader to be instantaneously drawn into the story. Ms. Shoup pens a superb read that leaves a long-lasting impression.’ -The Romance Studio
Andie is a 32 year old lovely, dark haired woman, a stained glass artisan. The cover could feature her or the abandoned farmhouse -- a large once-stunning place. It is haunted. The themes are love (that continues beyond death) family, surviving tradedy and reincarnation.
