After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen-year-old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper-class England in the 1820s, is shattered when her brother mysteriously drowns. Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can't accept that her brother's death was an accident.
A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There's a rumor, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham. Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother's killer claim her life, too?
Why I'm waiting:
- The regency era is my favourite period of history to read about, and I haven't read anywhere near enough for my liking.
- Both the cover and synopsis drew me in, and I preordered it back in March as a birthday present to myself, even though I have to wait until August to get it.
- I've just had an email off Book Depository saying my preorder has been dispatched!
