Guests staying at a B&B often remark that this would be the perfect job. All it requires is some decorating skill to make the rooms look appealing, baking goodies, and interacting with the guests. Marilee soon discovers there is more to it than she thought, especially when her dreams start becoming reality. The noises in the attic, the letters falling from hidden spots all seem to relate to a war fought 200 years ago. Loyalist House may be more than just a lovely historic home. It may have secrets that relate to Marilee’s dreams in the mist. (Description taken from Trafford Publishing, 2012).
