It's 1933 and the height of Boston's social season. Claire Healey overhears a terrible argument between her industrial-tycoon father and her socialite mother. Claire's father sends her mother away, declaring 
she is hysterical with fatigue. Displaced by this disastrous outcome, Claire is brought to New York by her spirited aunt, to be raised beyond the reach of the damaging turn of events.

Nine years later, Claire returns to her childhood home to face her past once more. The world has long since exploded in war. A mysterious stranger named Carsten Reiniger has infiltrated the scene, placing his commanding presence among the old familiar faces of Boston's elite. Intrigued by the newcomer, Claire struggles to piece together his identity and finds a dangerous connection to her troubling past.

When Claire's prying comes to light, she and her aunt are whisked away in the middle of the night to ensure their silence. Can Carsten Reiniger be trusted or is he implacably loyal to duty alone?

So chilling to think husbands had this kind of authority over the women in their lives! Thank goodness Claire has her aunt!

I'm reading my downloaded copy but I'll try to come by here and comment. This opening chapter is gripping. And while your writing style in Blue Honor was awesome, this is even better. It flows like silk. You amaze me.

Well written. Great descriptions. The pace was almost too slow, though. I felt it dragged a bit, especially considering you state what happens in the blurb. I'm not a WP expert by any means, but this approach may turn people away.

Truly a complete painting of an event so elegantly painted. I look forward to the next chapters as my time permits.
