She has nothing to live for in the present, but finds there's something worth dying for in the past…
From Tiffany Reisz, the international bestselling storyteller behind The Bourbon Thief and The Original Sinners series, comes an enthralling new novel about a woman swept away by the tides who awakens to find herself in 1921, reunited with the husband she's been mourning for four years. Fans of Kate Morton and Diana Gabaldon will fall in love with the mystery, romance and beauty of an isolated South Carolina lighthouse, where a power greater than love works its magic.
Faye Barlow feels completely hollow. Tragedy after tragedy has sent her life into a never-ending downward spiral. Once again faced with starting all over again, she heads to coastal South Carolina to photograph the legendary Lowcountry area for a charity calendar.
There’s just something about the place that the locals call “Bride Island” and its historic lighthouse that calls to her in frightening and thrilling ways. And she finds herself caught in a magical place where the future is unclear and the past never dies.
“You can’t go back, you know,” Faye said.
Carrick Morgan is a man haunted by the memory of war. As the light keeper on Bride Island in 1921, he’s been able to keep his many secrets locked away from prying eyes. They all thought that his young daughter drown in the treacherous water surrounding the island and he never recovered from her death.
That was his story, but it wasn't his truth.
His truth was far more fantastic and scandalous than anyone could have ever imagined. But was it really a second chance at love or was it punishment for all the sins that he tried so hard to forget?
“To think I spent my whole life believing time only went in one direction,” he said. “Thought it was a river. Turns out it’s an ocean. Waves come in. Waves go out. Sometimes those waves take us with them.”
The Night Mark is Tiffany Reisz as you have never seen her before! It’s just as rich, lush and dreamy as fans would expect but there’s a thread of something pulsing right under the surface - Something more.
More hope, more laughter and more tears.
She’s fashioned a realm where you can actually see the prisms of light, smell the salt spray and feel the ache in your heart. And in the end, you’ll find yourself believing in the healing power of love…
