Description
In the Hawaiian Islands, a divorcée is threatened by a dangerous deception from her past, in this novel from "a superb and gifted storyteller"(Mary Higgins Clark). Hawaiian-born Caroline Kirby was only six years old when her parents died under mysterious circumstances, and she was shuttled off to live with her grandmother in San Francisco. Now, after years under the strict governance of the old woman, followed by an unhappy marriage, the young, newly single Caroline is anxious to return to the lush vistas of her island home, reunite with her long-lost relatives, and above all, finally defy her eccentric grandmother's sinister warning to never question the past and never, ever go home again. At first, Maui is even more splendid than she remembered, and family and acquaintances more inviting than she could have dreamed—including David Reed, a childhood friend who now offers the possibility of a new romance. But soon, in the imposing shadow of the Haleakala volcano, where her parents met their fate, Caroline begins to fear that her entire world has been built on a lie, and everyone she has come to trust is guarding a long-dormant secret so shocking it could not only change her life, but end it. From the Edgar and Agatha Award–winning "Queen of the American gothics" ( The New York Times ), Silversword is a novel filled with "ever-reliable scenic suspense" ( Kirkus Reviews ). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.
