THE SILENT FOUNTAIN
This haunting tale of love and tragedy will keep readers up all night as they work to unravel a mystery that will leave readers guessing until the very end. The complexity of the novel stems from the way Fox layers the character development and plants seeds of doubt about each character's nature and intentions. Truly one-of-a-kind, this is a book that can be read over and over, with something new being revealed each time.
In 1978, Vivien Lockhart is a rising Hollywood star, but the glamour of her fame can't erase the past that haunts her. When Giovanni Moretti waltzes into her world, Vivien starts to believe that her life is about to change for the better. In so many ways, Giovanni is Vivien's perfect match, but his sister's presence and the secrets she carries hangs a black cloud over their love. Decades later, Lucy Whittaker finds herself living in the Castillo Barbarossa, the house owned by the now reclusive Vivien. With so many stories hidden in the estate's walls, Lucy becomes determined to uncover the past, while struggling to avoid the reality of her own. Digging up history means coming face-to-face with the truth, skeletons and all. (MIRA, Nov., 400 pp., $15.99)
