“This mysterious tale will remind you of the Daphne du Maurier classic Rebecca. The Lantern is a tale of suspense and intrigue that takes place both in the present and in the 1940s in the south of France. The beautifully described scenery and chilling situations will keep your eyes glued to the page. I was in suspense until the very end. A fantastic read!”
-- Summer Moser, Summer's Stories, Kendallville, IN


Description
Set in the lush countryside of Provence, Deborah Lawrenson's "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 GenEvriers, 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.
