The Rising Tide

The Rising Tide

One glorious gothic mansion – Garonlea – and two rather different ladies who would be Queen . . .

Lady Charlotte French-McGrath has successfully ruled over her family with a rod of iron until the arrival of Cynthia: beautiful, young, talented, selfish – and engaged to her son Desmond.

When Cynthia enters the Jazz Age, on the surface her life passes in a whirl of hunting, drinking and romance. But the ghosts of Garonlea are only biding their time: they know the source of their power, a secret handed on from one generation to the next.
