WinterwoodeBook - 2013
Dorothy Eden's masterpiece of Gothic romance sweeps readers from nineteenth-century Venice to a magnificent English manor and into a dazzling story of desire, deception, and fatal greed. Haunted by her scandalous past, Lavinia Hurst accepts a position as companion to young invalid Flora Meryon. But something is very wrong at Winterwood, the Meryons' isolated estate by the sea. And when Flora suddenly becomes heiress to a large fortune, Lavinia realizes that her charge is in mortal danger. It becomes clear that someone is determined not to let Flora live to see her inheritance. Then letters begin arriving from a dead relative. Do ghosts haunt Winterwood? Or is this the specter of living greed? Determined to thwart the deadly plan, Lavinia risks her own life to protect Flora's, while fighting her powerful desire for Flora's father, Daniel, a man tormented by his own demons. Rich in atmosphere and mystery, Winterwood is Dorothy Eden at her Gothic best.
