It seemed like a dream. The world had exploded…
Summer is ending, Evie’s step-father is finally home from the Second World War, and Evie is sick of her glamorous mother treating her like a little girl. Then a mysterious stranger appears: a handsome ex-GI who served in combat with Evie’s step-father. Slowly, Evie realizes that she is falling in love with him. But he hides dark secrets, and exerts a strange control over her parents. When he is found dead, Evie’s world is shattered. Torn between her family and the man she loved, Evie must betray someone. But who? A gripping tale of intrigue and forbidden secrets, which reaches a climax as a hurricane lashes the golden coastline of Palm Beach, Florida.
