Sometimes we find our true purpose in the most unexpected places.
Is Sarah Anne Mercer’s sole pupil mentally unbalanced or are the walls of Ripon House guarding a sinister secret?
Becoming governess to a difficult child in a robber baron’s gloomy mansion on the Georgia coast is not the life Sarah Anne had envisioned or wanted. The cultural clashes between her rural southern upbringing and that of the wealthy northern family send her reeling, but she is determined to be a success. She needs this job for all other doors have closed. Her position is further complicated when two young men of the family vie for her attention, engendering emotions that she fights but cannot quell.
Through patience and dedication, Sarah Anne breaks through the emotional wall with which the girl has surrounded herself, but in the process realizes there may be very good reasons for the child’s troubling behavior. Something is not right within Ripon House. As her understanding of the family dynamic deepens, a terrible suspicion forms. It seems Sarah Anne’s employers are hiding a dark secret – a secret someone may have committed murder to safeguard.
