These months are unaccounted for, and around them Ann Victoria Roberts has woven a passionate, mysterious, and enthralling novel.A married Bram Stoker, about to begin the writing of his famous novel, develops a dangerous relationship with a local girl from an old seafaring family, who introduces him to the wild sea, the wrecks, and local legends -- some of which will come to new life in Dracula -- and to his own weaknesses and desires.
