This is a love story that will leave you utterly breathless. Meet Sylvie, a heroine who will steal your heart and who has lost so much. Shawn and Rhys are the two young men who vie for her attention; one of them has a hold on Sylvie that she can’t quite understand. And when she starts seeing things that aren’t really there - or are they ? - she wonders whether she’s losing her mind as well.

Synopsis

The Splendour Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Sylvie Davies is a ballerina who can't dance. A broken leg ended her career, but what broke her heart was her father's death, and what's breaking her spirit is her mother's remarriage. Still reeling Sylvie is shipped off to stay with relatives in the back of beyond. Or so she thinks, in fact she ends up in a town rich with her family's history ...and as it turns out her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys she can't stop thinking about. Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, is the expected choice. But handsome and mysterious Rhys has a hold on her that she doesn't quite understand. Then Sylvie starts seeing things - a girl by the lake and a man with dark unseeing eyes peering in through the window ...Sylvie's lost nearly everything - is she starting to lose her mind as well?

About the Author

Rosemary Clement-Moore

She says of herself: I’ve been writing stories all my life, even when I should have been doing other things, like studying Algebra. My first paying job was as Chuck E. Cheese. I worked in theatre for years, and now I’m writing full time, which is my dream job, because I get to work in my pajamas and take a break every afternoon to play Guitar Hero.
