This is only a short story but takes you back in time to the 1800's and the life of a young girl, Sylvia, who has just been jilted. You have a chance to see what her life is like before it all changes with a disaster that she doesn't think was an accident. This is quite a dark story although it does come with a HEA. There is also a twist to it that you may or may not see coming. I saw some but not all of it. I don't know if it's based on a legend or myth but either way, it's a good short story.

It was a good story of betrayal of the depest kind. Good ending.

I wanted to like this book but it was barely worth the time. Average writing, implausible story, little character development or depth. The editing errors were plentiful as well - the wrong name used in a couple of places, missing words, and words in the wrong place.
