Who Am I? Her only key to the past was the brooch she wore. And when Mark returned her interest, the stark, shuddering secrets of her past resounded through the haunted walls of Maulever Hall!
Who Am I? Her only key to the past was the brooch she wore. Marianne -the inscription echoed through her mind as she wandered across the bleak moors, clutching the tiny hand of the child at her side. But instead of comfort she found terror. With little idea of the peril and horror the relationship will bring, she was oddly attracted to the handsome owner of the manor. And when Mark returned her interest, the stark, shuddering secrets of her past resounded through the haunted walls of Maulever.

You-Jim-here a moment.
