Publisher Description

Some families will do anything to protect their secrets...

A haunting Victorian gothic mystery from the author of the acclaimed Sea of Secrets! In this short novella of about 80 pages, when governess Medora Yates arrives at mysterious Hawksclaw House in the dying days of 1856, she has no idea what lies in store. Her employers claim that their young son is too sick to meet her or Gerard Redfern, the new tutor. And when surly Mr. Hawksclaw abruptly announces the next day that his son has died, Medora and Redfern know he is keeping something from them.

Was the child murdered, perhaps even by one of his parents? Or is the story of his death a lie to conceal something else just as sinister? Medora's investigation will unearth dark family secrets, past tragedy, and the true fate of the heir of Hawksclaw... all of which will culminate in an astonishing act of redemption.

Readers who enjoyed meeting the spirited Miss Yates in DeWees's Victorian romantic suspense novel Sea of Secrets will be delighted to read of her further adventures here. And if you love the Victorian mysteries of Anne Perry and Barbara Michaels, as well as DeWees's other romantic suspense novels such as A Dangerous Observer and With This Curse, you won't want to miss The Heir of Hawksclaw.

7th Duchess of Bedford ,

Good Characters, Weird Plot

I have read at least four other books and novellas by Amanda DeWees but I found this book a little too weird for my tastes. I’m not in to the idea of polygamous relationships or three-way marriages, which is the aspect of this book that left me scratching my head. But I think the author is great. It was nice hearing more about Medora Yates.
If it’s your first time reading an Amanda DeWees book I’d recommend starting with the Sybil Ingram series instead.
