Some families will do anything to protect their secrets...

A haunting Victorian gothic mystery from the author of the acclaimed Sea of Secrets! In this short novella of about 80 pages, governess Medora Yates arrives at remote Hawksclaw House in the dying days of 1856 to find that the parents of her new charge won't even let her meet him. When surly Mr. Hawksclaw announces the next morning that the boy has died, Medora and the new tutor know he is keeping something from them. Their investigation will unearth family secrets, tragedy, and the true fate of the heir of Hawksclaw... all of which will culminate in an astonishing act of redemption.

Readers who enjoyed meeting the spirited Miss Yates in DeWees's Victorian romantic suspense novel Sea of Secrets will be delighted to read of her further adventures here. And if you love the Victorian mysteries of Anne Perry and Barbara Michaels, as well as DeWees's other romantic suspense novels such as A Dangerous Observer and With This Curse, you won't want to miss The Heir of Hawksclaw.
