Das erste Buch, was ich mal von ihr gelesen habe. Toll. Schade, dass sie nicht in diesem Stil weitergemacht hat. ( )

Als ich im peitschenden Wind endlich vor dem grossen alten Haus stand, zweifelte ich plötzlich, ob meine Entscheidung richtig war; denn nicht einmal ein Funke der Erinnerung glomm auf, nicht der Schimmer eines Bildes aus längst vergangenen Tagen erhellte das Dunkel, während ich, mit der einen Hand meinen Hut, mit der anderen meinen Umhang festhaltend, das düstere Gemäuer betrachtete.

Book description
After her mother's death in 1857, Leyla's only links with her heritage and family are a letter and her last name—Pemberton. Resolved to seek out her past, she travels from London to the brooding countryside mansion of Pemberton Hurst. Leyla longs to find a loving family, but more importantly, she needs to uncover the truth of her past.

But the Pembertons seem strangely reluctant to discuss family history, and the house feels smothered by the weight of untold secrets. Increasingly torn between the safety of life with her sophisticated fiancé in London and a new, dangerous love, Leyla is no longer sure where to turn and whom to trust.

Then terror strikes. A murderer roams the corridors of Pemberton Hurst, and Leyla is suddenly thrown into a maelstrom of deceit, madness, and horror. With her life in jeopardy, Leyla must uncover the truth of her past before it destroys her.

Resolved to seek out her past, Leyla travelled from London to the brooding mansion of Pemberton Hurst. Here she hoped to find a loving family and to unlock her mind, for she could remember nothing of her first five years of her life, spent under that very roof. Instead, she became the focus of dark secrets. Her heart torn between her sophisticated fiance in London and a new, dangerous love, she did not know whom to trust. Then terror struck, for it seemed a murderer roamed the corridors of Pemberton Hurst.
