    The path of Eve Forrester's life has been paved by the deaths of others. After her father's sudden passing, she was raised alone by a callous mother. Years later when the war takes its toll, Eve loses her first love and must settle for another man. She now lives a monotonous life, waiting for her favorite radio program to begin to escape the tedium of each day. In the spring of 1948, Eve receives a mysterious letter directing her to claim an inheritance in the south of France. Suddenly, she's thrust into the lavish French Riviera, where she learns she is part owner of an extravagant home perched on the Mediterranean. Surrounded by strangers, Eve must uncover why she is included in this shadowy bequest. As she digs deeper, she discovers unimaginable truths about her past and unknowingly brings herself close to peril. Rhys (Dangerous Crossing, 2018) offers another utterly captivating, mysterious historical novel, bringing to life the intoxicating beauty of the sea and the hidden dangers lurking at its edge.
