A riveting story of love, obsession, and the unraveling of one family from the inside out.

"Vincenta keeps you turning pages as she takes you on a journey that explores the complexities of marriage and families, professional quests as well as one's deepest, darkest passions."― Renee Rosen, bestselling author of What the Lady Wants

Local romance author Lydia Carroll only knows one version of the MSW story: her husband's. English professor Frank Carroll has been fixated on the mystery of her disappearance for years, crafting a narrative based on Mary's poetry and journals that insist that Mary lived past that night in 1939.

As Frank's behavior grows more erratic, Lydia sees that his interest in Mary has evolved into an obsession―one that threatens to destroy the family they have built together. Lydia throws herself into the mystery, hoping to solve it and bring peace back to her home. But as Lydia begins investigating, her son takes action with a plan of his own…one that will bring the family to a breaking point and change Lydia's destiny forever.

Born into the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC, I only discovered in college how much I loved the vast fields and sky of the Midwest. I studied English and creative writing at the University of Iowa, and the countryside there set my heart on a path that would eventually lead to Michigan. But not before my first paid writing job, as police beat reporter for a daily newspaper in Louisiana, and various less-relevant employment, such as years managing the accounts for a Customs broker in Houston.



Michigan has been my home, physically and spiritually, since I was a young mother, and now that my children are grown I am still joyful every day to be living here, near the Great Lakes with their beautiful dunes, woods, rivers, orchards and towns. Years ago, with my former husband in a small southwest Michigan city, I founded and managed a publishing company that specialized in international trade publications. We built it up from a kitchen counter project we hoped might support us while we raised our children, into a multi-media operation that was eventually purchased by Thomson Reuters.

Now, at my home in Kalamazoo, I write fiction and non-fiction, read a wide variety of literature, spend time on local Earth-care projects, volunteer at Michigan lighthouses, and cherish the amazing people in my life. I enjoy the world by foot, bicycle and kayak, from time to time wandering foreign lands, everywhere gathering experiences and questions to take back to my writing desk.
