The Vanishing Point

Mary Sharratt

In the culture of Philippa Gregory’s shrewdpermanent, transporting fiction comes this story of darkish suspense, love, and betrayal, that includes star-crossed sisters, one misplaced and the opposite searching.

Bright and inquisitive, Hannah Powers was once raised by way of a father who handled her as though she have been his son. whereas her appealing and reckless sister, may well, pushes the bounds of propriety of their small English city, Hannah harbors her personal mystery: their father has given her an schooling forbidden to girls. yet Hannah’s mystery serves her good while she trips to colonial Maryland to reunite with might, who has been married off to a far off cousin after her sexual misadventures ruined her marriage customers in England.

As Hannah searches for might, who has disappeared, she unearths herself falling in love together with her brother-in-law. on my own in a wild, uncultivated land the place the previous principles not observe, Hannah is free of the limitations of the society that judged either her and should as dangerous—too clever, too fearless, and too hungry for all times. yet Hannah can also be laid low with doubt, as her quest for solutions to May’s destiny grows ever extra stressful and tangled.
