Trencarrow Secret by Anita Davison
Trencarrow, the Hart family's country estate near Penzance in Cornwall contains two nemesis for twenty-year-old Isabel Hart. The lake where she nearly drowned four years before, and The Maze in the gardens of the elegant Queen Anne manor house.
It’s the summer of 1882, and with her forthcoming engagement to her childhood sweetheart imminent, Isabel attempts to put at least one of her fears behind her. However, when she summons the courage to venture inside the maze, she sees something she didn’t anticipate.
As other family secrets are revealed, Isabel is faced with the fact her vibrant, beautiful mother is desperately ill and her cousin, Laura, has developed a clandestine attraction to an enigmatic young man.
Isabel's growing doubts about her fiancé are exacerbated as she finds herself attracted to Viscount Strachan, one of her father's houseguests. Isabel discovers the lives of those around her are anything but ordinary and that her destiny lies in her own hands.
Will she see her way through the maze her life has become, or will she be driven further into her own world?
