"Séance In Sepia, by Michelle Black, is an extraordinary novel. Spanning two worlds it guides the reader from present to past in a deft and enchanting chapter by chapter narrative.
Flynn Keirnan, a woman helping her father purchase merchandise for his Antiquarian bookshop, discovers a old photograph in one of the volumes. It's not an ordinary sepia picture but a Victorian 'spirit photograph'. A local antique dealer offers Flynn a nice price for the the photo but she decides to try her luck on eBay, little knowing that she is generating a firestorm that will alter her life forever.
Who are those tragic, ghost-like images looking outward from the fading photo? Are they subjects of a bizarre and notorious murder trial held in
in 1857 that the
press dubbed 'The Free Love Murders'? Would Victoria Woodhull, a popular
spiritualist of that time, decipher the true answers in a séance? Was it
murder, or suicide? And, how does Flynn cross the boundaries of time to
resolve old issues? Séance In Sepia is a mystery and a
romance, both old and new. A fascinating read, peeking into private
thoughts found in an old journal, reading the actual trial transcript and
pursuing notes of the famous feminist Victoria Woodhull. Chicago
Seance In Sepia has not yet been released but can be reserved on Amazon."--Allene Reynolds
