AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Horace Tremaine, holidaying in Scotland's Western Hebrides, hears he has inherited an aunt's fortune by default - the will she had made being lost. He refuses to take the legacy from the niece to whom she would have left it; they fall in love; and he discovers the secret of the will's disappearance and a domestic ghost in his betrothed's somnabulism. Pleasant romance. (PB)
