Sanctuary. Successful photographer Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped that house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden and unexplained disappearance of her mother. Yet the sprawling southern resort off the coast of Georgia continues to haunt her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all a photograph of her long-lost mother...naked, beautiful, and dead. Now Jo realizes that it is time to return to Sanctuary. The island inn, run by her bitterly estranged family, brings back painful memories as she is enmeshed once again in the troubled relationships she has struggled so long and hard to forget. With the help of one man, she must learn the truth about who is stalking her - and about the tragic past that torments her family still. But the menace that drove Jo back to Sanctuary has followed her there. And those on the island will learn that Sanctuary may be the most dangerous place of all....

Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the youngest of five children. After a school career that included some time in Catholic school and the disciplines of nuns, she married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland.

She worked briefly as a legal secretary. "I could type fast but couldn’t spell, I was the worst legal secretary ever," she says now. After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along. A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.

Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn’t reading or making up stories. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981.

Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves. They were married in July 1985. Since that time, they’ve expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together.

Through the years, Nora has always been surrounded by men. Not only was she the youngest in her family, but she was also the only girl. She has raised two sons. Having spent her life surrounded by men, Ms. Roberts has a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers. It was, she’s been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming.

Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. Recently The New Yorker called her "America’s favorite novelist."
