About this title


Mere weeks after moving into her unique one-bedroom apartment on a bluff overlooking Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Adelia is confronted by an old man reveals a mystery for which he can remember only two details. He wants to know what has been done to find a valuable locket lost in the building sometime in the distant past. In Memories Will Always Linger, Elizabeth Tidwell brings a fresh style to mystery and historical writings. Using primary dialogue, she weaves a tale of one of Virginia's more famous post-Civil War families, the Langhornes, with the people and events of the building on the bluff. Cameo characters of the tale include presidents, diplomats' daughters, a dictator's son, and movie stars interacting with everyday students and staff of a prominent girls' prep school, a corrections department academy and a few ghosts. Each chapter is rich with the history of a crucial time in the site's existence and how the area's inhabitants are affected. Separate introductions for each chapter chronicle Adelia's encounters with the old man or the changes in perspective as her fascination and time investment deepen. So organized, there are two surprise endings. Even the author was shocked by the locket's final resting place.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Tidwell has been a professional writer for over thirty years, primarily as a journalist and public relations specialist and consultant. Memories Will Always Linger, her first novel, combines a love of history with skills of research, interviewing, observation and telling. She finally found the right site for a mystery novel and has great acquaintance with it, having lived in Fairfax Hall for over a year. The story developed along the way as she did research about the site and surrounding area. She writes part-time at her home just south of Charlottesville, Virginia. Most days, and many evenings, you will find her working for the University of Virginia or giving tours of Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello. Her next novel may take her to Al Capone's Northern Michigan retreat or somewhere along the Lewis and Clark Trail, if she can just find the right site.
