Overview

When Max Milionas inherits his parents’ house at 201 Atwater Street in New Haven, Connecticut he is determined to sell it as soon as possible. However, he quickly discovers that the residence has a history that it is begging to tell.

With the house itself as narrator, author Marion Marchetto weaves an enchanting tale set in one of New Haven’s most historic districts. Max and his wife Edwina’s research into the background of the old house takes them from the town clerk’s office through to the extensive libraries and research facilities of Yale University.

They soon uncover clues that lead them through a series of secrets that have been hidden for the past two hundred years. Enlisting the aid of an historical interior designer the house is soon restored to its original, beautiful condition and is able to free its untold secrets.

Does the house’s history hold a promise for the twenty-first century? The key to unlocking the house’s mystery may prove that history sometimes comes full circle, welcoming everyone home again.

Author’s Notes

I enjoyed at last uncovering the story that my in-laws’ house gave birth to. It was very enjoyable to invent a past history for the house given the wonderful historic area in which it is set.Wedding Day

I had the most fun meeting for the first time the character who would become pivotal in this series, Merline Madagascar. Her name actually came to me in a dream! When I finally sat down to create her, her family history unfolded itself slowly, in layers. She is a very complex character.

The character of Caroline is that of a very independent woman. You’ll find that she is just the first of a long line of strong, independent women that will be populating this series.
I hope that you’ll enjoy experiencing this glimpse of history as much as I enjoyed writing it.
