A lush, historical setting envelops the reader in New York Times bestselling author Katherine Howe's "The House of Velvet and Glass."
Its Boston 1915, a world of seances and scandals, and Sibyl is still reeling from both. Her mother and sister recently perished aboard the Titanic, and Sibyl has been attempting to contact the spirit world for answers, even as her rogue brother has returned home after being kicked out of Harvard. He is taken with a young woman, and Sibyl has no one to turn to except former lover, Benton, who left her for another woman. But as Sibyl turns to spiritualists for answers and begins to depend on Benton more, their former spark reignites. From scrying to opium dens, Sibyl is about to learn a powerful secret about her family and herself and that knowing the future doesn't mean you can change it.
With a touch of the supernatural to its fantastic historical setting, this powerful book will keep readers reeling.
