Amanda Hope "The Pengally face"
Amanda Hope is the pseudonym of an author already well-known in the writing field who breaks into the world of romantic-suspense fiction with this gothic story of a determined young heroine out to discover the fate of her missing brother and to reveal the truth about the man who has conspired to deprive him of his rightful inheritance.
