Garnet by Nancy B. Brewer
It is France 1889. Tucked away in a stately château overlooking the Loire River, Garnet’s life had been for the most part unremarkable. One day melted into the next until she awakens to find herself a beautiful young woman with desires and needs that those walls cannot provide. With the unexpected death of her aunt, her seamless world comes to an abrupt end. As it has been from the beginning of time, beauty, wealth and innocence are sought by the unscrupulous. Garnet must ask herself, which is reality, the world in which she lives or the unexplainable.
