Abstract:

After the suspicious death of his father, Adam Blaine attempts to help his family heal as the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicion on those closest to him.

"Two months after the suspicious and much-publicized death of his father on the island of Martha's Vineyard, it is taking all of Adam Blaine's will to suture the deep wounds the tragedy has inflicted upon his family and himself. As the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicions on those closest to him, Adam struggles to protect them from those who still suspect that his father was murdered by one of his kin. But the sternest test of all is Adam's proximity to Carla Pacelli, his late father's mistress; and a woman who, despite being pivotal to his family's plight, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn to. The closer he gets to this beautiful, mysterious woman, the further Adam feels from his troubles. Yet the closer he also comes to revealing the secrets he's strived to conceal, and condemning the people he's so hard fought to protect. This is a complex family drama pulsing with the tumult of the time and dripping with summer diversions, youthful passion and ideals, class tensions, and familial disruptions"--
