Rating: 3 Cups
Leora Grace Mayweather was to be the one and only mistress to the Mayweather House. She had fallen in love and eventually married Captain William Thomas Mayweather. However their love was cut short when she perished on their honeymoon voyage aboard the Leora. Captain William Thomas Mayweather had commissioned the Mayweather House to be built for his lovely bride. The house was to be one of the most magnificent homes in all of England. Upon the death of his wife the Captain was so distraught that he himself died of despair not long after.
Nancy Lee Abernathy had experienced many adventures in her long life. The curse of the Mayweather House had drawn her and her friends like it had many others over the years. With the help of her guardian angel she escaped with her life and her sanity, but others were not so lucky. But she was ready to be reunited with her late husband and son.
Roaming the mists of the afterlife the ghosts of Leora Grace and Captain Mayweather searched for each other for over a hundred years. They knew that to end the curse of the Mayweather House they would have to enlist the help of Nancy Lee Abernathy and several other people in the living world. The curse had been put upon the Hunley land long before the Mayweather House had been built. A young slave girl that had been tortured by the Hunley’s cursed the land and those that owned it for all eternity. Centuries later during the building of the Mayweather House, the curse took on a new twist with the evil Tommy Ray Hussyman vowing to kill Leora Grace and Captain Mayweather. He was so enraged when Leora Grace chose the captain over him that he vowed to never let anyone have her if he could not. So for the next one hundred plus years the star crossed lovers tried to find their way back to each other through the fog of the dead. The ghosts of Leora Grace and Captain Mayweather along with several others fought against the evil spirits to bring an end to the curse. They knew that the time had come and they had to work quickly before they lost their only chance of being together forever.
This is a timeless story of love and tragedy. Nancy Lee was a force of nature. Being elderly did not stop her from loving and living with all of her heart. Leora Grace was blessed by the hand of God and loved without measure. Even after her death she continued to have faith that someday she would be reunited with her William. Captain Mayweather was strong and true to his vows. He searched endlessly for his wife whom he would love for all eternity. The ghosts of Leora Grace and William unknowingly came together and told their story through the voice of Nancy Lee, hoping that someday the fogs would lift and they would be together once again. The battle of good and evil continues to wage as this story unfolds and the devils’ day is coming to an end. With faith in God we must believe or be forever lost in darkness.
