Description

Set in the lush countryside of Provence, Deborah Lawrenson's "The Lantern "is an atmospheric modern gothic tale of love, suspicion, and murder, in the tradition of Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca. "Drawn to a wealthy older man, Eve embarks on a whirlwind romance that soon offers a new life and a new home--Les GenEvriers, a charming hamlet amid the fragrant lavender fields of Provence. But Eve finds it impossible to ignore the mysteries that haunt both her lover and the run-down old house. The more reluctant Dom is to tell her about his past, the more she is drawn to it--and to the mysterious disappearance of his beautiful ex-wife. An evocative tale of romantic and psychological suspense, "The Lantern "masterfully melds past and present, secrets and lies, appearances and disappearances--along with our age-old fear of the dark.

Review quote

"A seductive mixture of a Gothic ghost story and a modern romance. . . . If the story doesn't keep you up all night reading, the sharp and beautiful descriptions of the South of France will. Deborah Lawrenson has written an alluring, dark novel that will haunt you and leave you wanting more."--Danielle Trussoni, author of "Angelology"
