|By Eleanor Robinson and Josephine Bentham|
I received an email from someone in Europe, asking me if my grandmother had co-written a book with this woman named Josephine Bentham, a novel called Wakefield House. They used the name Jan Deering.
I immediately called my mother to find out if this was true. She said yes. So I went on Amazon, found the book and ordered it. I am almost done reading it.
It's very mysterious. You can tell it was written in 1973. The authors used this as the back cover:
Beautiful young Meredith Wakefield was the last of the Wakefield line. Her proud family had fallen into poverty, her whole world had come crashing down around her, even her sanity itself was threatened. And now, Meredith faced the grimmest test of all, as she returned to her family mansion to find it filled with strangers, and she was a prisoner of fear in what was once had been her beloved home.
Centuries ago, a deadly curse had laid down upon all who bore the Wakefield name. Now, this terrified girl stood between the curse and it's grisly fulfillment. And someone, or something, was making sure she would not escape!
