Publisher's Summary

1906: Lady Elizabeth “Libby” Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn’t favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles onto the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage’s former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished. 

Oliver Tremayne - gentleman and clergyman - is determined to discover what happened to his sister, with the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth’s summer cottage...especially when he realizes it’s the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can’t quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him. 

As Libby and Oliver work together, they uncover ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.

Slow start, but wonderful as usual from White!

This book took a bit to get rolling, but White pulled it together wonderfully! It was very much worth the listen. Liz Pearce also did a great job narrating. I could discern each character clearly.

Loved it

Not disappointed with this pair of storytellers as usual. Looking forward to listening many more times, to catch all the tidbits hidden in the story line.

I Usually Like Roseanna White Books

I didn't realize that I had sent this book back months ago (if that sounds strange, I listen to a lot of books). Once again, I had to return it as it just wasn't grabbing my attention. It seemed vaguely familiar and after checking my account I had returned it once before. YMMV, it just wasn't keeping my attention.
