Set in the lush countryside of Provence,
The Lantern is an atmospheric modern gothic tale of love,
suspicion, and murder, in the tradition of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca.
Drawn to a wealthy older man, Eve embarks on a whirlwind romance that soon
offers a new life and a new home—Les GenÉvriers, a
charming hamlet amid the fragrant lavender fields of Provence. But Eve finds it
impossible to ignore the mysteries that haunt both her lover and the run-down
old house. The more reluctant Dom is to tell her about his past, the more she
is drawn to it—and to the mysterious disappearance of his beautiful ex-wife. An
evocative tale of romantic and psychological suspense, The Lantern masterfully
melds past and present, secrets and lies, appearances and disappearances—along
with our age-old fear of the dark.
