Three sisters.

Three secrets.

Three ways to fall . . .

England, 1628.

Forcibly seduced by the powerful George Villiers, doctor''s daughter Hester is cast aside to raise her son alone and in secret. She hopes never to see Villiers again.

Melis''s visions cause disquiet and talk. She sees what others can''t - and what has yet to be. She''d be denounced as a witch if Hester wasn''t so carefully protective.

Young Hope''s beauty marks her out, drawing unwelcome attention to the family. Yet she cannot always resist others'' advances. And her sisters cannot always be on their guard.

When Villiers decides to claim his son against Hester''s wishes, the sisters find themselves almost friendless and at his mercy.

But the women hold a grave secret - will it be their undoing or their salvation?

Because in the right hands, a secret is the deadliest weapon of all . . .
