When Emma D'Eresby ' a 29 year-old, self-contained Professor of History ' leaves her Cambridge college for a post in an exclusive university in Maine, USA, she hopes to learn more about a curious 17th-century journal in the College library. Instead, it leads her to a secret that should never have been uncovered. In the States, Emma meets the enigmatic 33-year-old surgeon, Matthew Lynes, a quiet and thoughtful widower. Driven to learn more about him, Emma takes the unique journal from the College library in which she believes there are clues to his family's English past. Meanwhile, the sinister Professor Koort Staahl mounts a psychotic attack on her. Matthew's courageous intervention saves her, but as he nurses her back to health, his unusual attributes raise questions he is unwilling to answer. As Part One ends, she returns to her claustrophobic family, avoiding her domineering father and wrestling with despair.

The story is OK, good enough that you want to find out what happens, but you won't be impressed by it. Emma is really stupid sometimes which drives me nuts. The end seems forced and kind of ridiculous, the choice Emma makes at the end is totally over reacting and doesn't make sense.

There are also editing issues, I found lots of places where it may say something like someone go up out of their seat yet they never sat down. There was also a complete line without spaces.

Despite the minor continuity problems and the end, I do kind of want to read the next book to see how things turn out.
