About Book

The coachman tried to warn her away from the ruined, forbidding place on the rainswept Cornish coast. But young Mary Yellan chose instead to honor her mother's dying request that she join her frightened Aunt Patience and huge, hulking Uncle Joss Merlyn at Jamaica Inn. From her first glimpse on that raw November eve, she could sense the inn's dark power. But never did Mary dream that she would become hopelessly ensnared in the vile, villainous schemes being hatched within its crumbling walls — or that a handsome, mysterious stranger would so incite her passions ... tempting her to love a man whom she dares not trust.

Jamaica Inn looms against the rain-swept November sky. Upon her arrival, Mary discovers that her aunt has been transformed into a frightened crone and that midnight's crimes make Jamaica Inn empty of all good men. Neither the chill of night nor the threat of death and danger will prevent Mary from searching for answers to the mysteries surrounding the notorious Jamaica Inn. Reissue.
