From Back Cover:
Edith Burrows and her two young daughters made the fatal decision almost without thinking. It was a quiet afternoon when they began their journey down the wild, desolate Cape Hatteras coast. How could they have known that in a few short hours the skies would blacken and a raging storm would drive them off the road? How could they have known what their rescuers - two nice young men and a beautiful young woman - had in mind for them? How could they have imagined the evil that can invade and capture the human spirit? How could they have known the terror that was to come?
