This book is a suspense novel written by Louise May Alcott written in 1866. It was written two years before she wrote Little Women.
It captured my attention as it went on as Rosamond, a young girl is stalked by her so called husband, Tempest. He woos her into marrying him, and eventually she finds out his dark secrets, and runs away from him.
A two year hunt goes on and he finds her at every turn and he is enjoying the hunt. A priest, named Ignatius aids her and is loyal to her throughout.
The lengths she has to go through to rid herself of her stalker keeps you interested. This novel is definitely worth the read.
