After the death of her mother, Rynna Dalton comes to live with her imperious great-grandmother and her bookish, disabled cousin Ted at Stonebridge Manor. Almost immediately she is aware of a mysterious presence, which she believes is the spirit of her mother’s murdered cousin, Rosalind. Rynna is charmed by Rosalind’s lawyer son Jason Wyatt, who courts her, and she agrees to marry him. Meanwhile, Ted and Rynna become good friends.
But Stonebridge holds secrets that will profoundly affect her future. Why is Ted so opposed to the match? Why does Rosalind seem to warn Rynna against it? And how far will Jason go to possess Stonebridge—and the woman he professes to love?
Linda Griffin was born and raised in San Diego, California and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. She decided to become a “book maker” as soon as she learned to read, and she wrote her first story at the age of six. She earned a BA in English from San Diego State University and an MLS from UCLA. She began her career as a reference and collection development librarian in the Art and Music Section of the San Diego Public Library and then transferred to the Literature and Languages Section where she managed the Central Library’s fiction collection.
She had a short story published in the SDSU literary journal, The Phoenix, but most of her magazine publications came after she left the library to spend more time on her writing. Her stories, in every length from short shorts to novellas, have been published in numerous journals, including Eclectica, Thema Literary Journal, The Avalon Literary Review, and most recently Willow River. Stonebridge is her seventh book from The Wild Rose Press.
In addition to the three R’s—reading, writing, and research—she enjoys Scrabble, movies, and travel and has visited 48 states and three countries.
