From a New York Times-bestselling author: In nineteenth-century New England, a desperate young woman's only refuge becomes an inescapable trap. It was fitting that Miranda Heath's first glimpse of the forbidding home at Bascomb's Point was in the fury of a thunderstorm. Despite her late father's caution to steer clear of his friend Obadiah Bascomb's New England mansion, Miranda, destitute as she was, had no choice but to accept the old captain's charitable request.

From a New York Times-bestselling author: In nineteenth-century New England, a desperate young woman's only refuge becomes an inescapable trap. It was fitting that Miranda Heath's first glimpse of the forbidding home at Bascomb's Point was in the fury of a thunderstorm. Despite her late father's caution to steer clear of his friend Obadiah Bascomb's New England mansion, Miranda, destitute as she was, had no choice but to accept the old captain's charitable request. Besides, her father and Obadiah's adventurous past was as much a part of her heritage as their legendary ship, the Sea Jade. But it's beyond Miranda's imaginings when she finds herself swept up in an impetuous marriage with a friend of the Bascomb family, a virtual stranger to her. More victim than bride, and at the mercy of her imposing new mother-in-law as well as Obadiah's mysterious wife and a threatening housekeeper, Miranda fears the invitation to the isolated house was more a matter of revenge than rescue. She has no way of knowing that buried in her own past is the key to a tragic mystery that's been left to her to solve-if she's to make it out of Bascomb's Point alive. The recipient of the Agatha Award for Lifetime Achievement, Phyllis A. Whitney is "a superb and gifted story teller" (Mary Higgins Clark). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.
