Cara Hamilton is lured to America from Ireland by a letter from her brother. Relieved to know Eoghan is alive, she arrives in a strange, new land, anxious to find her brother. Despite Eoghan's warnings to speak to no one, she finds herself in a budding friendship with the tenacious Rourke Walsh. With Eoghan's words ringing in her ears, she proceeds cautiously with her new acquaintances. But before long, she realizes that things are not as they seem, and the land of opportunity quickly becomes the land of danger.
For every step Cara comes closer to finding Eoghan, she begins to trust Rourke a little more. But as the truth of her intentions in coming to America - and the truth about her brother - begins to surface; Rourke's real reason for getting to know Cara better threatens to be revealed as well. Will Cara and Rourke be able to find Eoghan? Or have the sands of time run out for both of them?
This wonderful novel comes to us from a well-known mystery/suspense writer, Elizabeth Ludwig. I loved everything about this book; the characters with the way they kept my interest in every detail of their lives, the setting of a young Irish woman coming to America, and the plot with it's twists and turns. I cheered with them when they succeeded, and I cried when they didn't. In the end, it was a very satisfying read, and I hope you will enjoy it every bit as much as I did.
