From the mistress of the modern Gothic romance comes a lively, uncanny tale of long-forgotten secrets buried in the shadows of an old Southern mansion. Houses of Stone is Barbara Michaels at her best: imaginative mystery brimming with delightful wit, blooming romance, and unearthly terror. Professor Karen Holloway travels to Virginia to search for the grave of Ismene, the mysterious author of a battered 19th-century manuscript. But eerie, inexplicable coincidences make Karen wonder if Ismene is desperately trying to warn her from the grave.

Professional reviews

"Women's literature scholar Karen Holloway determines to solve the mysteries of "Ismene" and her apparently autobiographical novel. Michaels's format, a story within a story, presents special difficulties in audio. As the two stories shift back and forth, Rosenblat's attempts to keep the distinctions of each clear are often confounded by muddy writing. Nonetheless, Rosenblat skates with zest through the Gothic doings. Her character differentiations are clear and rather fun, but Michaels's descriptive details weigh her down. This book is clearly a candidate for abridgment. S.B.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
