When a man has secrets that compel him to a reclusive life, only a brooding manor house will do and with it, a ray of sunshine in the form of a lively woman who must break through his personal shadows to set him free. Such is the fascination of Raeburn Court, where the plans of Byron Stratford, Duke of Raeburn, to exact revenge against her wastrel brother, Jack, are thwarted by the wiles and wisdom of Lady Victoria Wakefield. Lydia Joyce's The Veil of Night is a worthy sojourn amid nocturnal secrets and passions where the treat is more potent for the duel of wits and wills than the revelations. Sandy Huseby writes from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota, and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
