"Foul deeds will rise, though all the earth o'erwhelm them, to men's eyes". Savannah, Georgia -- 1858. Celia Browning dreams of the day when her childhood sweetheart Sutton Mackay comes home to Savannah after two years in Jamaica managing his family's shipping interests. Sutton has all but proposed, and their marriage will unite two of the city's most prominent families. But just as Sutton returns, a newspaper reporter arrives in town, determined to pry into twin tragedies that took place at the Browning mansion on Madison Square when Celia was a child. The unsavory journalist continues to unearth the Browning family's dark past, and Celia begins to receive threatening anonymous notes, along with a bracelet imbued with a chilling message. As the clouds of war gather over Savannah, and her beloved father's health worsens, Celia realizes that her family's past has the power to destroy her future and determines to uncover the truth about what really happened all those years ago. Inspired by actual events in one of Savannah's most prominent 19th-century families, The Bracelet is the story of a young southern woman whose dreams fracture under the weight of her family's tragic past"--Provided by publisher.

A good light read.

Talented author knows how to develop a plot.
This story arises from historical bits, so is completely believable.
At the end, we discover Celia will return for more adventures - there are many avenues left open for tangents.
Thoroughly enjoyed! The madwoman is not in the attic, but under everyone's noses.
