About the Author:

Born Eleanor Alice Burford, Victoria Holt was one of Britain's most prolific writers of historical romance. Always determined to keep her birth date and private life a closely guarded secret Holt wrote under many pseudonyms -- Jean Plaidy was one of her most popular, and was created when she lived near Plaidy Beach in Cornwall. Having written over ninety historical romances, she then began a new series of Gothic romances, the first of which, Mistress of Mellyn, appeared in 1961. The Shivering Sands was first published in 1969 as part of the same series. She died at sea in January 1993, somewhere between Greece and Port Said, Egypt.

From AudioFile:

Despite the delightful expressiveness of reader Eve Karpf's British voice, this Gothic mystery set on the southern coast of Victorian England is loaded with background and internal thoughts. Things finally pick up, and Karpf imbues her crisp accent with clear characterization, helping the reader sort out the confusingly large cast. M.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
