Summary In the small Cornish village of Pevlyn, secrets are as treacherous as the rocky English shores. Cornwall, England, 1820 Raised on the sprawling and rugged Wyndcliff Estate near the dangerous coast of South Cornwall, Evelyn Bray lives with her grandfather, a once-wealthy man now reduced to the post of steward. Evelyn is still grieving her father's death and her mother's abandonment when a passing ship is dashed against the rocks. Liam Twethewey is a mere two and twenty when he inherits Wyndcliff Estate from his great uncle. His optimistic plans of opening a china clay pit to employ the estate's tenants meets unexpected resistance, and rumors of smuggling and illegal activity challenge his newfound authority. Brought together by troubling questions surrounding the shipwreck, Evelyn and Liam uncover even darker mysteries shrouding the estate. But as they untangle truth from deception, their loyalties separate them -- and their budding love might not be strong enough to overcome the distance. This latest Regency romance from Sarah E. Ladd evokes the captivating worlds and delicious dramas of Jane Austen, Daphne du Maurier, and Winston Graham. "An expertly woven tale of secrets, danger, and heartfelt romance. A riveting and deeply emotional read." -- Mimi Matthews, USA TODAY bestselling author.
