Description

From the bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief comes a sweeping tale of loss and courage, where one woman discovers that her destiny is written in sand, not carved in stone.

Faye Barlow is drowning. After the death of her beloved husband, Will, she cannot escape her grief and most days can barely get out of bed. But when she's offered a job photographing South Carolina's storied coast, she accepts. Photography, after all, is the only passion she has left.

In the quaint beach town, Faye falls in love again when she sees the crumbling yet beautiful Bride Island lighthouse and becomes obsessed with the legend surrounding The Lady of the Light--the keeper's daughter who died in a mysterious drowning in 1921. Like a moth to a flame, Faye is drawn to the lighthouse for reasons she can't explain. While visiting it one night, she is struck by a rogue wave and a force impossible to resist drags Faye into the past--and into a love story that is not her own.

Fate is changeable. Broken hearts can mend. But can she love two men separated by a lifetime?

Review quote

A dark, twisty tale of love, lust, betrayal, and murder...this novel is not one to be missed. -Bustle on The Bourbon Thief

I loved [Reisz's] Original Sinners series, and this book looks like an epic to delve into on a long, lazy afternoon. Her prose is quite beautiful, and she can weave a wonderful tight story. -New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst on The Bourbon Thief

The Bourbon Thief isn't just good, it's exceptional. The story captured my imagination; the characters captured my heart. -Literati Literature Lovers

Reisz fills the narrative with rich historic details; memorable, if vile, characters; and enough surprises to keep the plot moving and readers hooked until the final drop of bourbon is spilled. -Booklist on The Bourbon Thief

Beautifully written and delightfully insane...Reisz vividly captures the American South with a brutal honestly that only enhances the dark material. -RT Book Reviews, Top Pick on The Bourbon Thief

Impossible to stop reading. -Heroes and Heartbreakers on The Bourbon Thief

The Bourbon Thief is the sort of book that knocks you off your feet, steals your sanity and keeps you up all night reading! Fair warning-this is definitely a nontraditional love story... Not for the faint of heart! -RT Book Reviews

Prepare yourself for soap-operatic level twists, and also to ignore everything else in your life as your race to the end of this eyebrow-raising tale. -RT Book Reviewson The Bourbon Thief
