Item Details

Baker & Taylor
After her mother dies, Mary Yellan goes to live with her aunt and uncle at the mysterious Jamaica Inn where she is terrified by the ruthless lawbreakers that frequent the roadhouse

HARPERCOLL

The coachman tried to warn her away from the ruined, forbidding place on the rainswept Cornish coast. But young Mary Yellan chose instead to honor her mother's dying request that she join her frightened Aunt Patience and huge, hulking Uncle Joss Merlyn at Jamaica Inn. From her first glimpse on that raw November eve, she could sense the inn's dark power. But never did Mary dream that she would become hopelessly ensnared in the vile, villainous schemes being hatched within its crumbling walls -- or that a handsome, mysterious stranger would so incite her passions ... tempting her to love a man whom she dares not trust.



Baker

I was somewhat disappointed in this book. It was ok but not nearly as good as Rebecca or Frenchman's Creek. The story was kind of slow and the ending was a let down.
