Sea Girt, New Jersey. 1890: Joseph Johnson arrives from London to see the property that his wealthy industrialist father, Samuel, has developed on the American coast. Riding through the dunes, the young man comes across a two-room cabin that houses his father’s 18-year-old adopted daughter, Isabel. Before this visit, Joseph knew nothing about the young woman, whom his father apparently saved from drowning off the coast of Colombia when she was small. To be fair, Joseph knows almost nothing about Samuel, either, as the man left him back in England to be raised by a nurse; his mother “disappeared.” Samuel now expects Joseph to marry Elizabeth Edwards, the beautiful daughter of a local doctor. Joseph likes the girl, but he can’t get his mind off the mysterious Isabel, who everyone claims has a fatal disease. Nor does he know that Isabel almost succeeded in poisoning Samuel to death when she was younger. Isabel is anything but welcoming, but as she and Joseph get to know each other, long-held secrets threaten to come to light. This novel is for mature readers, due to sexual content, some violence, and a-small amount of profanity.

I just needed more and more as I started reading the first chapter. I realized I had a gem in my hands as soon as I started reading. Joseph is a confused son who comes back I to the life of his father after being sent away, not knowing the darkness that has happened and what exactly happened to his mother and why he was sent away. He’s having to deal with being engaged to a girl he hardly knows. Elizabeth, the fiancée, is a nice girl who is trying to figure out what type of mystery is happening behind the scenes. Isabel, this girl who is living in the shadows is a subject of curiosity for most. The story is so good and there are so many different twists and turns throughout the book. I need to talk about this to everyone I know! It’s amazing! Read the book! You will not regret it.

    Good suspense and a plot with the usual money, greed and power with some interesting history. Some unique characters but the plot is a bit too tidy for me.
