Amazon.com: Profile For Fran Lewis: Reviews:
Taking a ferry rise would change Sara and David's lives forever. Sara's sister, Susan summons her to come to Balestrom when her husband, Victor dies under strange or unusual circumstances. On the ferry ride there the driver enlightens both Sara and David about the history of this house, its previous occupants and the untimely murder of Cyrus Balestrom by his mistress.
