Product Description

From the Back Cover

Throughout the area near Murells Inlet, South Carolina, the story of Alice Flagg is well known. The tragic tale of the ill-fated love between a fifteen-year-old planter's daughter and a common lumberman has become legend across the state. In order to end Alice's unacceptable affair, Alice's brother, the acting head of the Flagg family, shipped her off to boarding school in Charleston. Soon after she arrived, Alice contracted a fatal disease and had to return home to the Hermitage. She soon lapsed into a coma and died in 1849. Legend states that during her burial, Alice's brother discovered a ring strung around her neck on a ribbon, and angrily tore the ring off and threw it into the marsh in scorn for the forbidden love between Alice and the lumberman. Alice Flagg: The Ghost of the Hermitage tells the story of the star-crossed lovers and documents the strange story of Alice's afterlife. Numerous sightings have been reported of a young girl, barefoot and dressed in what seems to be a wedding gown, wandering around the area, seemingly looking for her lost ring. Although she died more than 150 years ago, unnerving experiences with this despondent ghost still occur. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

HASH(0xb3581bd4) out of 5 stars So happy to have found this book! Oct. 21 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I saw this book in a bookstore at Myrtle Beach when I was a teen. I didn't buy it then and regretted it terribly! I was so happy to find it on Amazon. The book was very enjoyable and I loved that she included some historical facts of the area in this otherwise fictional book. The story of Alice Flagg's ghost intrigued me as a young woman and it still does. Nancy Rhyne is a wonderful author and I have enjoyed many of her books over the years.
