Summary, etc.:
"London, 1893. Seeking refuge after the death of her husband, Cora Seaborne departs for coastal Essex. Once there, she hears rumors that after nearly three hundred years, the mythical Essex Serpent, a fearsome creature that once roamed the marshes, has returned. Eager to investigate, Cora is introduced to parish vicar William Ransome. As they attempt to discover the truth, these seeming opposites find themselve inexorably drawn together--and as their pursuit becomes more urgent, Cora's London past follows her to the coast, with striking consequences."-- Back cover.
