About this title


When Josh and Libby Langston move from Baltimore to a small fishing town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, they’ll soon find out that the sleepy town of Corsica has some deep-rooted secrets. Thinking that she has finally found the perfect place to call home, Libby will discover her new dream house has a troubled past that is about to be awakened. HAVERFORD HOUSE has sat vacant for sixteen years and is in need of many repairs. Having the summer off from her teaching job Libby plans on tackling the renovations. With Josh busy in his new partnership at a Baltimore law firm, Libby is alone in the house for long periods of time, or at least she thinks she is alone. When a Haverford descendant, who died over a hundred years ago at the house, begins sending Libby cryptic messages to “Save her”, Libby seeks the help of some of the townspeople. One of them, a diminutive African-American woman, TASSIE JACKSON, the town’s oldest living resident, guides Libby to find out more about a suspicious death that took place in the house twenty years ago. The previous owner of the house, one of Josh’s new influential clients, is running for the U.S. Senate in the upcoming election. When he finds out that Libby is stirring things up about the death of his wife so many years ago, he confronts her, worried that she will ruin his chances of winning. Libby ignores his pleas for her to stop digging and discovers too late that sometimes the past is better left alone.


"Winfield masterfully reveals how the complicated lives of the people in Corsica are intertwined ... She paints a rich picture of the characters' personalities .... [and] establishes a strong sense of setting ... Winfield draws readers in with her use of details ... deftly shifting from a character-driven story to a plot-driven, action-filled mystery ... With unusual but appealing characters, she keeps readers deeply engaged throughout her eccentric, compelling novel." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ FIVE STARS, --  FOREWORD CLARION REVIEWS "Reading Haverford House was a genuine treat. It is a fascinating story filled with intrigue, suspense and wide appeal." -- MAUREEN BARON, I.E.G., NEW YORK
