Rainsong Author:Phyllis A. Whitney The long corridors of Windtop echoed with emptiness. No one else was supposed to be out there in the dark. Yet when Hollis stepped into the hall, she could hear the voice singing eerily: Let the Rain Fall Sweetly. — Only one man could sing her "rainsong" in exactly that way--a song Hollis had written especially for her husband, Ricky Sands, the f... more »amous popular singer. But Ricky had killed himself months ago in New Youk, so who could want to torment her in so frightening a manner?
Phyllis Whitney, as always, tells a riveting and romantic story of suspense. The setting is the former whaling town of Cold Spring Harbor, on Long Island's North Shore, a quiet and picturesque town in its present-day setting. Surely a place for Hollis to escape the notoriety surrounding Ricky's death. Or so she thinks.
But there are those who are not telling everything they know about Ricky. Among them, Alan Gordon, who has rescued her from press and cameras, and brought her to this country home of the once-distinguished pianinst Geneva Ames, a woman with secrets of her own to conceal.
The story unfolds though the actions of these and other characters whom Phyllis Whitney depicts so well, involving her readers in tantalizing events, as Hollis find new creativity in her song writing and a new chance for love in her life.« less
