Description
The Palm Beach home of Ross Logan contains his celebrated collection of oriental art, and a prized new possession -- his terrified young bride.... Adorning the Florida coastline stands Poinciana, the fabulous mansion of the Logan family. Inside its regal walls a volcano of intrigue and violent emotion has begun to erupt, and not one of the Logans is safe. Especially not Sharon Hollis Logan, the lovely young bride of patriarch Ross Logan. For reasons unknown to Sharon, Ross seems to be hated by Gretchen, his daughter from a previous marriage, by her ne'er-do-well husband, Vasily, and by Ross's strange mother, Allegra -- and all their hostility is readily transferred to Sharon. But as she tries to find out why, Sharon uncovers a devastating secret about her own relationship with her husband -- a secret that, in the end, will test the limits of her courage as well as her ability to love ....

display_description A millionaire's Florida estate becomes a sinister trap for his bride in this classic gothic romance from "a superb and gifted storyteller" (Mary Higgins Clark). On the Florida coastline stands Poinciana, the Logan family's fabulous mansion. Inside its storied walls are the two most prized possessions of patriarch Ross Logan: his invaluable collection of Oriental art and, even more priceless, his new bride, Sharon. When Ross proposed, it seemed Sharon's dreams had come true and her tragic past was at last behind her. Now she'd be safe and find happiness, a family, and a home as the wife of one of America's wealthiest and most celebrated oil and banking magnates. But upon her arrival at the sprawling Palm Beach estate, Sharon can't ignore the strange undercurrents of hostility emanating from everyone who resides at Poinciana-from Ross's principal assistant to his reckless and resentful daughter from a previous marriage to his strange and guarded mother, who has isolated herself in a cottage on the grounds. And when Sharon starts asking questions about the Logan family history, even Ross turns from a dynamic and solicitous husband to a dark and silent menace. As secret after secret is revealed, Sharon begins to doubt her sanity-and safety-in this isolated house of strangers.
