A mysterious Victorian diary connects a young romantic in contemporary London to a woman who died a century ago. While visiting the Tate Britain museum, Cori Keeling can’t take her eyes off her favorite Pre-Raphaelite painting: John Everett Millais’s Ophelia. But it’s Cori herself who catches the eye of gallery worker and aspiring artist Simon Daniels. He’s immediately struck by Cori’s resemblance to the red-haired beauty in the nineteenth-century masterwork. While the haunting painting holds the power to bring Cori and Simon together, for Cori it has become an obsession—one that has led her to a mysterious diary from a century ago. Within its pages, a woman named Daisy hid a shocking secret. The further Cori reads, the clearer it becomes that Daisy will stop at nothing to be heard—and she’s crying out for Daisy to help her. As the ghosts of the past envelop Cori and Simon, they’ll discover the truth about the girl in the painting, the woman in the diary—and Cori’s own chilling connection to both of them.

A woman’s love of impressionist art draws her into a ghostly mystery along the North Yorkshire coastline. Staying alone in a sprawling, long-abandoned estate in Yorkshire would be madness to some. On the other hand, art enthusiast Lissy de Luca is looking forward to the isolation—and to beginning her research into the Staithes Group. It was here, more than a century ago, that the roiling seas and towering cliffs inspired the artistic passions of the famed commune. For Lissy, one of the most inspiring sights is the imposing Sea Scarr Hall itself—but the longer she stays, the stranger things get. There is the lonely figure who strolls the cove at night, and a hidden painting that is both seductive and unnerving. And then there’s the photograph Lissy finds of a young girl—one so unnaturally beautiful and so eerily familiar. Each discovery is leading Lissy to a chilling conclusion. She’s not alone at all. Those who once occupied the shadows of the manor house have a message for her. And they’re going to make sure she gets it. It’s a matter of life and death.

Young and pretty Nessa hates her full name—Agnes—which she inherited from her great-great grandmother. It makes her feel even more awkward that she already is. But she’s starting to think she’s inherited something much more interesting from her namesake. Family rumor has long said that Great-Great Granny Agnes was a real-life witch. And with the peculiar things happening around Agnes lately, she wonders if she’s got a knack for witchery, too. First, there’s the strange book she picks up in her local coffee shop as if she were meant to find it. Then, out of nowhere, her hunky next-door neighbor Ewan asks her to accompany him on a supernatural research trip through Scotland. It’s a spooky, spirited journey—accompanied by a big black cat called Schubert—that will bring out the magic between Agnes and Ewan in a way neither would have expected . . .

From Last Call to On Stranger Tides to Declare to Three Days to Never, any book by the inimitable Tim Powers is a wonder. With Hide Me Among the Graves, it’s possible that the uniquely ingenious Powers has surpassed even himself. A breathtaking historical thriller in which art and the supernatural collide, Hide Me Among the Graves transports readers back to mid-19th century London and features a reformed ex-prostitute, a veterinarian, and the vampire ghost of Lord Byron’s onetime physician, uncle to poet Christina Rossetti and her brother, the painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. A novel that, like all his others, is virtually impossible to pidgeonhole—or to resist—Hide Me Among the Graves is the taut, gripping, and utterly remarkable literary thrill ride that Tim Powers fans have been eagerly waiting for.

Daniel Karlin has selected poetry written and published during the reign of Queen Victoria, (1837-1901). Giving pride of place to Tennyson, Robert Browning, and Christina Rossetti, the volume offers generous selections from other major poets such asArnold, Emily Bronte, Hardy and Hopkins, and makes room for several poem-sequences in their entirety. It is wonderful, too, in its discovery and inclusion of eccentric, dissenting, un-Victorian voices, poets who squarely refuse to 'represent' their period. It also includes the work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, George Meredith, James Thomson and Augusta Webster.

This is the first stunning installment of Fiona Mountain's riveting new mystery series that uncovers the secrets of the dead. Pale as the Dead deals with the mysterious death of Lizzie Siddal, a real and fascinating historical figure whose beauty and tragic life have made her into a legend. (She was the model for the famous painting on the cover of the book.) Lizzie's death has always been shrouded in mystery. She is perhaps best known for the macabre story that tells of her husband, the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti, having her coffin dug up to retrieve some poems he had buried with her. When the coffin was opened, Lizzie was said to be as beautiful as the day she died. Pale as the Dead is the story of how the disappearance of a young girl, Bethany, appears to be linked in some way to Lizzie Siddal. Our detective is Natasha Blake, a complex young genealogist with a passion for history. Natasha's career choice is partly driven by the mystery of her own roots--she was abandoned in the hospital as a newborn. Her mother disappeared hours after giving birth, leaving a false name and address and a note on the back of a picture postcard that said simply, "Her name is Natasha." Natasha is hired by the missing girl's lover, Adam, whose own life seems to have plenty of dark shadows. An old diary and famous graveyard lead Natasha into more danger than she bargains for--some people will do ANYTHING to keep a secret!
