She fell in love with a man named [[Barnabas Collins (Paperback Library)|Barnabas Collins]], and the two began a passionate courtship. A woman named [[Angelique Collins (Paperback Library)| Angelique]], had likewise fallen in love with Barnabas, but her obsession with him had driven her mad. Angelique was also a very powerful witch. Bitterly jealous of Barnabas’ affections towards Josette, he placed a curse upon him, turning him into a [[vampire]]. Barnabas tried to conceal this secret from Josette for as long as he could, but ultimately Josette learned the truth. Horrified by what had become of Barnabas, Josette had completely lost her will to live. She took her own life by leaping off of the edge of [[Widow's Hill]] onto the rocks below. In later years, the spirit of Josette would rise from the grave to make her presence felt throughout [[Collinsport]]. In [], the ghost of Josette manifested itself inside of the stately [[Cranshaw House]] in order to drive away the immortal Angelique, who had been terrorizing a young woman named [[Paula Jennings]]. == Appearances == [[The Foe of Barnabas Collins]] [[Category:Novels Characters]] Summary: Please note that all contributions to the The Dark Shadows Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://darkshadows.fandom.com/wiki/Josette_Collins_(Paperback_Library)"
