To the world she has committed an unforgivable sin . . .  
Is it possible for people to be possessed? That’s the question happily married Zipporah Ransome asks herself when she journeys from Clavering Court to her family’s ancestral home in Eversleigh. At nearby Enderby House, a mysterious place connected to her notorious grandmother Carlotta, Zipporah discovers the power of her untapped desires—and the price of their fulfillment.  Enigmatic Frenchman Gerard d’Aubigné changes Zipporah’s life forever. Unable to resist his sensual charms, Zipporah embarks on an illicit affair that leaves her with a haunting secret. Soon her life begins to mirror Carlotta’s, as scandal, violence, and deception threaten to destroy her home. No one, especially not Zipporah and her daughter, will be left unscathed.

Carrt has added yet another exotically monikered, garrulous female to her multi-novel English family epic (Song of the Siren, etc.); we're currently up to the Georgian era, with the trials of Zipporah Ransome—whom you may recall from last year's Will You Love Me in September.
