Daughter of the Stars | [Phyllis A. Whitney]

Daughter of the Stars

Lacey Elliot has been a woman without a past since the day her mother whisked her off to Charlottesville, refusing for 30 years to speak of her father, her family or her history. But when Lacey intercepts a desperate letter from an aunt in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, she sees her chance to confront the past that has terrified her mother and to fill in the gaps in her own life. Against the charm and the colorful, turbulent history of the picturesque town, the violent history of Lacey's own heritage is about to repeat itself.

Publisher's Summary

Lacey Elliot has been a woman without a past since the day her mother whisked her off to Charlottesville, refusing for 30 years to speak of her father, her family, or her history. But when Lacey intercepts a desperate letter from an aunt in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, she sees her chance to confront the past that has terrified her mother and to fill in the gaps in her own life.

Against the charm and the colorful, turbulent history of the picturesque town, the violent history of Lacey's own heritage is about to repeat itself. As she finds herself drawn to a man intrigued by the town for reasons of his own, old ghosts reappear and danger returns, as a killer walks among them once more.

    "story is ok but the recording is terrible"

    The story is fairly good - much history of Harpers Ferry, which I enjoyed. But the recording was defective, two downloads and it didn't change - it kept skipping - very annoying.

    "Full of Hiccups"

    I think the story would be good but the recording hiccups every minute or two and it is really annoying. The rating is because of the bad recording, not the book itself.
