Summary
  • Twenty years after being banished from Winthrop Island, Miranda Schuyler returns to find justice for the man she once loved
  • Summer, 1951. Miranda Schuyler's mother marries Hugh Fisher, whose summer house on Winthrop Island overlooks the famous lighthouse. Isobel Fisher, Miranda's new stepsister, is eager to draw Miranda into the arcane customs of Winthrop society. Miranda finds herself drawn to Joseph Vargas, whose father keeps the lighthouse. Joseph works summers in the lobster boats, attends Brown University, and enjoys an intense friendship with Isobel. Summer, 1969. The Island remains the same-- on the surface. Joseph Vargas has recently escaped the prison where he was incarcerated for the murder of Miranda's stepfather eighteen years earlier. Miranda returns, a renowned Shakespearean actress, determined to find justice for the man she once loved. -- adapted from back cover
