On Winding Hill Road : At the end of Winding Hill Road, buried in a woods of oak and wild rose and isolated behind an imposing stone wall, is the estate of reclusive Gatien Defalle. It's also the new home of young and beautiful Sarah Logan, who has accepted a position as companion to Gatien's thirteen-year-old daughter May. Oddly wise beyond her years, Sarah's puzzling charge is far from being a child. Puzzling, too, is Gatien himself. Sarah's handsome employer, disconsolate since his wife's strange death, is carefully guarded against the whispers and suggestions that it was something far more sinister than suicide. Seduced by the dangerously attractive and enigmatic Gatien, Sarah finds herself risking more than her heart. For the closer she gets to the man she loves, the nearer she gets to the threatening Defalle family secrets waiting to claim their next victim . . .
