Grieving for her dead child, lonely spinster Stephanie Bowman meets debonair Paul de Pretis by chance at a railway station. They fall in love, and she moves to his lakeside family mansion. He amazes her with mystic powers, bringing her child back to life. But Stephanie realises his entire family are long dead, rejuvenating using the blood of local villagers. Realising that meeting Paul may not have been chance after all, she vows to destroy him and his family, but may be forced to pay a terrible price….
A well-told very British tale, rich on character development and great value at almost 90,000 words. From the secrets of Stephanie's green suitcase, to her aunt Enid's hidden troubles and the horrifying secrets of the de Pretis family stretching back to medieval England and Greece, this book is all the more remarkable given that the author is dyslexic.
And watch out for the stunning twist at the end....
