Publisher's Summary

Jennifer still vividly remembers the day when, momentarily distracted, she left her three-year-old daughter, Debbie, unattended in a grocery cart. When she turned back, the child had vanished.

For seven years, there had been no sign of Debbie. Then one day, Jennifer receives a mysterious phone call from the wealthy Corinthia Arles, claiming that she has found her daughter. But when Jennifer arrives at Mrs. Arles' luxurious estate on Vancouver Island, the mystery of her lost daughter only deepens.

The sullen girl called Alice bears little resemblance to Debbie, and others claim that Alice is Mrs. Arles' great-grandchild and heir. Caught up in a maze of family intrigues and buried secrets, Jennifer faces a looming threat in her determination to uncover the truth about Debbie.
