In her latest sensual romance, the ever-popular Miller tells a gothic story about a woman, Susannah, who travels from Nantucket to the wilds of Seattle in 1906 to care for her deceased friend Julia's baby. She has never met her friend's husband, Aubrey, but takes her chances, in spite of Julia's last letters, which intimated a troubled marriage, and moves into his mansion. She soon learns that he believes Julia had lovers and that the child isn't his. To complicate matters even more, Julia led everyone to believe that she was involved with Ethan, Aubrey's brother. As Susannah tries to heal the rift between brothers, Aubrey becomes jealous of all the men pursuing Susannah (there's a shortage of decent women) and tries to court her himself even though he swore never to marry again. Miller is in top form in this wonderful tale of a former ugly duckling becoming a swan by virtue of kindness. Patty EngelmannCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
