Overview

Phoebe MacIntire, who is a servant to her father and sisters in her own house in Scotland in 1857, is an ordinary girl, with no big dreams for the future. She's perfectly happy in her humble life, with her cot in the basement and her little garden in the backyard. But when her father up and sends her to Newfoundland to be the lifelong servant to Lord Jacobs, she finds her life gets turned upside down.

Her journey across the Atlantic to her new home is long, scary and very unpleasant. When she arrives at the manor on a small island, she finds the beautiful place abandoned and only a note waits for her explaining her duties, the strange dietary requirements, and sleeping habits of her new master.

The very first night in her new home she's haunted in her dreams by a woman who clearly does not want her there and a strange blue-eyed man-wolf creature that follows the woman. Her dreams become more and more violent and mysteries start to be uncovered about a woman who was killed in a fire on the island, a creature that preys on anyone that comes to the island and a love story gone wrong that dates back over a hundred and twenty two years.

Join Phoebe as she explores the past, delving into witchcraft, and vampirism to help a brother save another from a life of sadness and misconception, making some amazing and surprising friends along the way.

Editorial Reviews

L. Jenkins
Ms. Tolles has crafted a superbly haunting story. The mood is darkly gothic in this well-constructed tale that literally pulses from the mechanizations of an evil force who invades without compassion or pity. It is a book filled with characters you will care about and become invested in – sharing their dreams and their failures.

This story is a nice hint with the works of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast kind of feel. Ms. Tolles is a master when it comes to her writing and I am one of her major fans with her works. Phoebe has been sent away to work as a housemaid for Nathaniel. Her father feels she will never marry since in his own eyes she’s damaged goods. But Phoebe finally fits in and starts to have feelings for her master even though she has awful dreams that should steer her away from the home she now lives in. There’s something deep inside of Nathaniel. He isn’t sure he can involve Phoebe in it but will she take no for an answer? What a great story.

Entertaining but feels like it needs more depth. Feels a bit like "have i read this before?" In places. That said, its a fun quick read with a satisfying end.
