A young British bride is caught up in her new family's complicated history in this atmospheric novel set in the American South after the Civil War.
When nineteen-year-old Stella marries Theron Renier, she has no idea what kind of clan she's joined. Soon after their arrival at Illyria, the Reniers' rambling beachside home, Theron is sent on a diplomatic mission, leaving Stella alone with his family.
As she tries to settle into her new life, Stella quickly discovers that the Reniers are not what they seem. Trapped in a world unlike anything she's ever known, vulnerable Stella attempts to uncover her new family's dangerous secrets—and stirs up a darkness that was meant to stay buried.
