Roxanne’s Ghost Saga is set against the backdrop of modern day South Africa. It is a complex ghost story of identical twin sisters’ love for the same man, told in two books.
And the theme? Nothing is what it seems.
We move into the realms of the mists of time that could either reveal or conceal.
Book 1, Goodbye, My Love, introduces country vet, Ben, his four-year-old autistic daughter and would-be nanny, Jessica James. Jess’ interview with Ben for the nanny position takes place on Friday the 13th. An attraction between the two is immediate, which by all accounts isn’t entirely normal.
Ben’s three oddball sisters-in-law descend on him for the anniversary of his wife Roxanne’s death. They try to convince Ben that Roxanne isn’t dead, more than likely to put an end to whatever might develop between Ben and Jessica. But Ben knows that no one could ever have survived that car crash.
His daughter is supposed to be autistic, but only sometimes does she display the symptoms that led to her diagnosis. As Ben said: Autism is not a disease, it’s a condition. Symptoms can’t be turned on and off at will. So…what is it with the child?
Ben’s wife’s twin sister, Millicent, brings a psychic with her to Ben’s home in order to help them find Roxanne. Only, Daemon wears dresses and a half-moon shaped earring. Who would take him seriously?
Of course, his wife’s twin isn’t happy to find Jess already in Ben’s house—trouble is imminent. But only as far as Ethel, Ben’s ancient housekeeper, will allow. What does the housekeeper know that will keep Millicent’s ruffled feathers under control?
Where is Roxanne?
In book 2, PS: I Love You, Jess found her.
Ben was wrong and the odd-ball sisters-in-law, believe it or not, were right—Roxanne wasn’t dead!
But where Jess saw her she could never come home from. She was as good as dead to Ben, because Roxanne couldn’t be his wife again, ever. If only Jess could find a way to make him understand, if only he would listen to her.
Amber, Ben’s 4 year old autistic daughter was in trouble. Her development regressed drastically and Jess hoped it wouldn’t be permanent. Trying to take the child away from the influence of her aunts, she found that she couldn’t leave the house. She, and Amber, were trapped at Weltevreden.
Was this what Ether, the old housekeeper, meant on the day Jess arrived when she told her Jess would never leave again? The sisters wanted to do her in, but she was trapped and at their mercy?
And then Ether decided that she was living her final day, and that there was one more thing she had to do. Can a person do that? Can when decide when it was time to die? And what was the last thing she had to do? And after she was gone…
Would the sisters’ plan for Ben and Amber finally be revealed?
