Told completely in flashback, Miramont’s Ghost is the story of Miramont Castle in Manitou Springs, Colorado and how it came to be haunted. Well, to be honest, it’s the story of everything leading up to that.
There are so many people who surround Adrienne who could support her and love her, but they are all selfishly caught up in their own lives or miseries. Some of the underlying vileness comes on slowly, but not implausibly. I was really enjoying this story, but I was extremely disappointed in the ending. Fortunately, I did read the afterword where the author stated that most of the events in this story were based on true events, from the report of a ghost in Miramont to the castle being abandoned and other bits. Still, it wasn’t enough to assuage my grumpiness at the ending.
