“Tremayne…does a terrific job of building suspense until events reach their climax in the midst of a violent storm.” – Library Journal

When Rachel marries dark, handsome David, everything seems to fall into place. Swept from single life in London to the beautiful Carnhallow House in Cornwall, she gains wealth, love, and an affectionate stepson, Jamie.
