The Orphan of Cemetery Hill combines a fascinating historical backdrop with an exciting romantic adventure. Following the exploits of an orphaned girl who can speak with the dead, and the charming rogue who captures her heart, the story crosses years and the Atlantic Ocean as a tantalizing mystery unfolds. Fox takes full advantage of the setting in mid-19th century Boston, taking the reader on a tour of its winding streets and delving into the era’s relationship with death and the intriguing industries that surround it. A very fun read, especially for fans of the gothic and macabre.

— From Andy


The dead won't bother you if you don't give them permission.

Boston, 1844.

Tabby has a peculiar gift: she can communicate with the recently departed. It makes her special, but it also makes her dangerous.

As an orphaned child, she fled with her sister, Alice, from their charlatan aunt Bellefonte, who wanted only to exploit Tabby's gift so she could profit from the recent craze for seances.

Now a young woman and tragically separated from Alice, Tabby works with her adopted father, Eli, the kind caretaker of a large Boston cemetery. When a series of macabre grave robberies begins to plague the city, Tabby is ensnared in a deadly plot by the perpetrators, known only as the "Resurrection Men."

In the end, Tabby's gift will either save both her and the cemetery--or bring about her own destruction.
