Full description for The Lantern
In the tradition of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, a modern gothic novel rich in atmosphere and suspense, set in the lush countryside of Provence--a beguiling story of love, scents, secrets, and murderDrawn to a confident and artistic wealthy older man she barely knows, bookish Eve recklessly embarks on a whirlwind affair that soon offers a new life and a new home--Les Genevriers, a charming yet decaying hamlet nestled amid the fragrant lavender fields of Provence. But with autumn's arrival the days begin to cool--and so, too, does Dom. Though Eve knows he bears the emotional scars of a failed marriage--which he refuses to talk about--his silence arouses suspicion and uncertainty. And, like its owner, Les Genevriers is also changing. Bright, warm rooms have turned cold and uninviting; shadows now fall unexpectedly; and Eve senses a presence moving through the garden. Is it a ghost from the past--or a manifestation of her current troubles with Dom? Can she trust Dom--or could her life truly be in danger?
