Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Philippa Gregory's smart, transporting fiction comes this tale of dark suspense, love, and betrayal, featuring two star-crossed sisters, one lost and the other searching.

Bright and inquisitive, Hannah Powers was raised by a father who treated her as if she were his son. While her beautiful and reckless sister, May, pushes the limits of propriety in their small English town, Hannah harbors her own secret: their father has given her an education forbidden to women. But Hannah's secret serves her well when she journeys to colonial Maryland to reunite with May, who has been married off to a distant cousin after her sexual misadventures ruined her marriage prospects in England.

As Hannah searches for May, who has disappeared, she finds herself falling in love with her brother-in-law. Alone in a wild, uncultivated land where the old rules no longer apply, Hannah is freed from the constraints of the society that judged both her and May as dangerous - too smart, too fearless, and too hungry for life. But Hannah is also plagued by doubt, as her quest for answers to May's fate grows ever more disturbing and tangled.

    "A most wonderful story, don't miss it!"

    I was looking for a book that was narrated by Terry Donnelly, any good book, since I love her voice and find her to be amazingly gifted. Initially, I was hesitant to buy this book because of 1 poor rating and luck of Audible reviews. I am glad I did!
    Vanishing Point is a very believable story that touched my heart - story of love and loss, happiness and pain, devotion and cruelty - story of human condition. Wonderful character development and attention to detail. I cried at the end - please do not worry, this book does not have a bad or dissatisfying ending, but because of how real the characters were to me. I did not want the book to end.
    The story line is well described in the Library Review, and I don't want to give anything away. I have a feeling this book will be more appealing to women than to men. If you love good fiction with a historical background, this is it!
