This article is for Karrin's grandmother. For any of her family member, see Murphy.

Grandma Murphy was Karrin Murphy's grandmother. She is mentioned in Summer Knight.


Grandma Murphy left Karrin her home when she passed away.[1][2] She had been a well-known rose gardener, and Karrin hired a service to care for her legacy: a garden that would fit a house four times larger.[3]

Summer KnightEdit

Main article: Summer Knight (novel)

Grandma Murphy's home is still decorated with her things: the living room in soft greens and yellows, and lots of ruffles on the curtains and the couch. There were beautiful old doilies everywhere that looked well cared for. The house has a heavy field around it—a strong threshold—it had a life of its own with a history. It was a home not just a place to live.[1]
