"A fine romantic in suspense and surprise." --New York Times Book Review On a bitter November evening, young Mary Yellan journeys across the rainswept moors to Jamaica Inn in honor of her mother's dying request. When she arrives, the warning of the coachman begins to echo in her memory, for her aunt Patience cowers before hulking Uncle Joss Merlyn. Terrified of the inn's brooding power, Mary gradually finds herself ensnared in the dark schemes being enacted behind its crumbling walls -- and tempted to love a man she dares not trust.

display_description Mary Yellan chose to honor her mother's dying request that she join her frightened Aunt Patience and foreboding Uncle Joss Merlyn at Jamaica Inn-- despite the coachman's warnings. From her first glimpse of the ruined, forbidding place on the rainswept Cornish coast on that raw November eve, she could sense the inn's dark power. She becomes ensnared in the vile, villainous schemes being hatched within its crumbling walls-- and falls in love with a handsome, enigmatic stranger. But what secrets is he hiding from her-- and can she really trust him?
