Drawn to Dom, a confident, artistic and wealthy older man she barely knows, bookish Eve recklessly embarks on a whirlwind affair that soon offers a new life and a new home—Les Genevriers, a decaying hamlet nestled amid the fragrant lavender fields of Provence. But with autumn’s arrival the days begin to cool—and so too, does Dom. Though Eve knows her lover bears the emotional scars of a previous marriage, he refuses to talk about the past—a silence that arouses suspicion and uncertainty. An evocative and sensuous tale of romantic suspense, The Lantern harkens back to books like Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca–a lush, gothic tale of love and jealousy, secrets and lies, that captures our age-old terror of the dark.
