One day, she meets a handsome young Englishman, Andrew Cameron. He is a widower with a small son. His wife is believed to have died in childbirth or, as the Victorians would say, while ‘being confined.’Mr Cameron is charming and Rachel soon falls in love. Despite warnings from her friends, she marries him and they set off for their honeymoon in England. At first, Rachel is gloriously happy, exploring London with her new husband. Things begin to go wrong, however, as soon as Andrew’s sister arrives with his son. She keeps dropping vague hints, implying, for example, that Andrew’s first wife didn’t die in childbirth, but in sinister conditions that no one really understands. As Rachel struggles to find the truth, she gets caught in a situation far more terrifying--and more confining--than anything she could have imagined.
