SALT LAKE CITY, UT Sept. 4, 2012
When Marlie agrees to attend a fancy Cadaver Ball with her old college roommate, she didn’t expect to actually see any cadavers at the ball. Or, that the cadaver would issue her a chilling warning. And she certainly never anticipated that a year later she would be married to a Tennessee State Senator, Daniel Cannon, and living in Nashville with two step sons. Add to the mix a sneaky suspicion that something is amiss with Daniel’s first wife’s death and now Marlie also has her overactive curiosity to deal with. What begins as an innocent inquiry into Daniel’s mysterious past, ends with Marlie right in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy she never saw coming.
A modern twist on Rebecca and Jane Eyre, Julie Ford’s new book follows Marlie’s precarious journey from misfit to socially tolerable. Along the way she haphazardly discovers the love, closure and acceptance that had always hovered just beyond her reach.
