From the Back Cover
Yes, the wind blew still. On the wall of the goat-pen near the cliff 's edge she could see the bougainvillaea tossing, and above the roof the palm-leaves shuffled and clicked like playing cards
Mary Stewart's long-lost novella, now back in print for the first time in 40 years.
1879. Lanzarote. A wealthy young woman elopes with an impoverished fisherman, leaving her family distraught.
1968. Perdita West, secretary to a famous author, visits Lanzarote on a research trip and begins to fall in love with the unusual, beautiful little island. When, while snorkelling, a landslide traps Perdita in an underwater cave, her efforts to save herself will reveal what happened to the ill-fated couple who fell in love at this very spot almost a century ago . . .
'A comfortable chair and a Mary Stewart: total heaven. I'd rather read her than most other authors.'
'She set the bench mark for pace, suspense and romance - with a great dollop of escapism as the icing.'

On Thursday, October 12, 2017, I discovered that all of her Gothics were on sale for Kindle and in a rash moment, purchased them all.
To my amazement, I had never read this one or even knew of its existence. I really liked the first story about Perdita and Michael and wish she had turned it into a novel.
