"It was the sort of thing that happened only in fairy tales....One day she was simply Jenny MacPartland--young, charming, divorced, working in a New York art gallery, struggling to support her two little girls--the next, she was a princess, lavishly courted by a handsome artist whose exquisite landscapes were making him famous virtually overnight. Until it became the stuff of nightmare. Married within a month, suddenly wealthy, adored, warmly cared for, Jenny knew she'd grow to love living on Erich Krueger's Minnesota farm. Until the lonely days and eerie nights strained her nerves to the breaking point and made her doubt her sanity...until a chain of shattering events revealed the link to a past more terrifying than she dared imagine--a past that threatened her marriage, her children, her life."--Publisher's description.
