Philippa Carr is a beloved author known to many by her other pen names, Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy. A mistress of romantic suspense, as well as a masterful storyteller, this is the third in a series of about nineteen books by her in which she tracks a family throughout successive generations. One need not start at the beginning, as each one of the books can stand alone.

Although somewhat formulaic, these books still have the power to keep the reader turning the pages. This one is set in Elizabethan England and tells the story of a young woman, Linnet Pennlyon, who is on the brink of becoming betrothed to one man, only to find herself forced to marry another, the rakish Colum Casvellyn, when circumstances intervene to change her fate.

Her passionate relationship with her husband changes over time, when Linnet discovers some secrets about her husband that she would have been better off not knowing. Moreover, when a stunningly beautiful stranger is cast upon the shores of the their castle, Linnet's life is never again the same. It is then left to her daughter, Tamsyn, to set to right what once went wrong.

Those who love the genre of romantic suspense, as well as fans of Ms. Carr, Mary Stewart, Norah Lofts, and Phyllis Whitney, will, undoubtedly, enjoy this book, as well as the others in this entertaining generational series of books.
