(From the publisher):
Bryn Mancini was born under a lucky star. Love, success and prosperity have all come easily. As he celebrates his silver wedding, he has all his heart can desire: beautiful wife, handsome grown-up children and the house of his dreams, a personal Camelot built overlooking a bend in the river. But on this day of celebration, something unimaginably dreadful is drifting downstream to his door.
Apollonia Durrance is a misfit, the emotionally neglected youngest child of an entirely selfish marriage. The strongest influence in her life is that of a man she never knew, her great-grandfather, John Ashe, whose powerful sinister portrait is consigned to the dark at the top of the house.
Api dreams of stepping out of the shadows. Maybe marrying for money will bring her the security she craves. But on her wedding day she meets again the only other man who has haunted her dreams, a man whose aura of love and happiness is like the promise of sunlight.
Even the golden people have their secrets. And few can escape the powerful hidden current of their genes. From the moment of that second meeting, two tragic destinies are set.
