The past is never far behind....

Ellen Kellaway, orphaned at age five, was raised by wealthy cousins, but was never allowed to forget that her every advantage was owed to the charity of others. However, when the son of a powerful London family asks for her hand in marriage, her world is opened up to untold wealth and social position. She never imagined that such an unlikely dream would come true.

Despite these wonderful new developments in her life, Ellen continues to be wracked b the bad dreams that have haunted her since childhood. What is the meaning of the lifelong nightmare--the image of an unfamiliar room, a door opening and behind it a dreadful presence? Perhaps it is a message urging her to uncover the secrets of her long-lost family--the secrets of the ancient home of the Kellaways on the Far Island, off the wild coast of Cornwall.

Really, really good mystery! Don't make any assumptions as to the men in the story and who 'the bad guy' is. No bad language or 'spice', which is nice. Fast-moving story. So well-written.
