Silver Fox


Why is Grandma’s house haunted?

Jane Martin has inherited her grandmother’s old farmhouse in rural Prince Edward Island, Canada. But from her first day in the house there are strange apparitions: figures at the windows, a parlour chair that rocks itself, noises in the night, footprints on the stairs and above all the locked door to the attic. Jane is joined by her friend Lydia, whose dog is afraid to enter the house, and is soon helped by a neighbour, Ian, a childhood friend and now possibly a romantic interest. Jane begins to learn something of the hidden life of her grandparents. There are rumours of rum running and a hidden career in opera. But her grandparents are not alone in haunting the house.

Gertrude Harvey and her team of ghost hunters, familiar to readers of other novels by Margaret Westlie, are called to help solve the mystery. They quickly learn that an elegant and mysterious woman without a last name is searching for a silver fox fur hidden somewhere in the house. Is it in the locked attic? Or in another locked room in the cellar?

Read Silver Fox and learn the secrets hidden in Jane’s new house.


Margaret Westlie, Novelist

Margaret Westlie writes in two genres, one derives from her Scottish ancestry and the other from her interest in the occult and paranormal. She lives in beautiful Prince Edward Island, Canada, where her novels are set. Westlie's novels bring 19th century Prince Edward Island to life, presenting perennial themes of women's lives: marriage, childbirth, and death; troubled relationships and reconciliation; loneliness and community. Yet she does so without bleakness or despair, presenting a realistic but hopeful portrayal of women able to draw on their own strengths to confront and triumph over adversity. She calls these novels Settlers’ Stories to honour her ancestors, the Selkirk Settlers. Margaret also appeals to the imagination of those who are drawn to the supernatural and occult by creating memorable characters, both worldly and other-worldly, who hunt the ghosts of contemporary Prince Edward Island and bring peace to those troubled by them. She has also written a book with an extraterrestrial theme. She calls these books Spooky Fun, to emphasize that the novels are entertaining without being frightening.
