Laurie Alice Eakes offers a captivating mystery set along the coast of Cornwall, England in the year 1813. Lady Morwenna Trelawny Penvenan, a young widow, finds a handsome stranger washed ashore after a ship wreck along her beach. She is struggling to raise her young son and to find a way to salvage his inheritance without depending upon her wealthy grandparents who live in the same area.

The handsome stranger, David Chastain, turns out to be a boat builder from Somerset whose father has recently died mysteriously.   In spite of his misgivings over her role in the shipwreck, David finds himself drawn to Morwenna. As she tries to get more information from David, Morwenna finds herself becoming more attached to the man behind the mystery.

Morwenna and David strive to overcome very different backgrounds and social classes as they become closer. Read the story and see if these two proud people are able to overcome their differences and find a neutrality in which they can develop a shared life. Rich in historical detail, spiced up with suspense and mystery, and sprinkled with romance, an enjoyable read!
