Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A remarkable achievement. Bestselling author Kinsale (The Dream Hunter), transcends genre and formula in this splendid Regency historical. Folie Hamilton is a neglected young wife in Herefordshire. Robert Cambourne is a lieutenant based in Calcutta. The two fall in love through a chance correspondence, but when she's widowed he admit he's married. Five years later, Robert returns to England as guardian to Folie's stepdaughter and after commanding them to appear at the mysterious and dark Solinger Abbey, he proceeds to behave like a madman. This gothic turn soon evolves into a surprising, highly charged tale of intrigue in high places and of a steadfast, unwavering love that stands in comparison to the best of Daphne DuMaurier and Patricia Veryan. (Mar.)
