Its 1864 and Lizzie Martin is leaving London for the south coast of England to be the companion of Lucy Craven, a teenager who lives in seclusion with her aunts and has recently lost an infant daughter to illness. En route, Lizzie meets Doctor Lefebre, a slightly off-putting gentleman headed for the same destination. Lefebre, it turns out, is hired by Lucy's family to determine whether the young woman is mad. And he discloses something shocking, Lucy Craven doesn't believe her daughter is dead, but insists the baby was stolen from her. While Lucy proves a bit moody, she hardly seems deranged. The girl's aunts are clearly withholding something. These tensions come to a head when a man is found dead in the garden, stabbed with a knife from the aunts home. Lizzie calls upon her beau, Inspector Benjamin Ross. Together, they find themselves entangled in a mystery as bewildering as any they've faced.--B.I.P.
