Some brief overview of book

A gripping suspense story about a woman who returns to Galveston, Texas after a personal tragedy and is irresistibly drawn into the insular world shes struggled to leave. Photographer Clare Porterfields once-happy marriage is coming apart, unraveling under the strain of a family tragedy. When she receives an invitation to direct an exhibition in her hometown of Galveston, Texas, she jumps at the chance to escape her grief and reconnect with the island she hasnt seen for ten years.

There Clare will have the time and space to search for answers about her troubled past and her familys complicated relationship with the wealthy and influential Carraday family. Soon she finds herself drawn into a century-old mystery involving Stella Carraday. Local legend has it that Stella drowned in her familys house during the Hurricane of 1900, hung by her long hair from the drawing room chandelier.

Could Stella have been saved? What is the true nature of Clares familys involvement? The questions grow like the wildflower vines that climb up the walls and fences of the island.

And the closer Clare gets to the answers, the darker and more disturbing the truth becomes. Steeped in the rich local history of Galveston, The Drowning House is an absorbing and atmospheric debut novel about family secrets that portrays two families, inextricably linked by tragedy and time. The Drowning House marks the emergence of an impressive new literary voice.

Elizabeth Blacks suspenseful inquiry into dark family secrets is enriched by a remarkable succession of images, often minutely observed, that bring characters, setting, and story sharply into focus. John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
