For years, Heather Tradescant had dreamed of the journey she and her father would take to England--a pilgrimage to the great gardens of history. Now that her father is dead, Heather is determined to fulfill his dreams. Unfortunately, her request to see the fabled 17th-century garden of Troytan House is denied by the owner. Though unwelcome, she braves the walls of briars and reaches the Victorian manor house beyond. She senses a strange mission of evil lurking, tainting the manor's peaceful beauty. Only then does Heather begin to wonder whether it is only stories of long-vanished witchcraft that haunt Troytan House or whether there is some more modern horror, hearer at hand, and far, far more dangerous.
Continuing in the classic tradition she established with such acclaimed novels of suspense as Stitches in Time, Vanish with the Rose, and House of Stone, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Michaels has penned a chilling tale that will keep you reading until the last page.

Bestselling author Barbara Michaels places American tourist Heather Tradescant on a research tour of English gardens after the untimely death of her dear father. The maze and gardens at Troytan House hold a strange fascination for Tradescant as she trespasses onto the estate. Witchcraft, mystery and love complicate her visit and transform her forever. Rosenblat masterfully depicts Tradescant as an intelligent and aggressive guest at Troytan House who is vulnerable to the advances of two very different British gentlemen. Her perfect British accent and skillful character analysis adjust splendidly as she portrays complicated, willful and diabolic temperaments. Rosenblat is an expert! B.J.P.
