Large Print Book
New York City, 1911. Representing the widow of a Wall Street financier, lawyer William Dysart travels to a small Long Island town with a generous offer for Miss Sybil Curtis's cottage and five acres of land. But when Sybil refuses to sell, the widow threatens to use her influence with the state to seize the property. Intrigued by Sybil's defiance and afflicted by a growing affection for her, William develops a desire to help her that becomes an obsession he cannot define. He becomes a man torn between duty and conscience -- a man who can finally see his faaçade of a life, though this observation presents him with truths he's unprepared to face. Part love story and part mystery, Incognito is an elegantly written, atmospheric novel of obsession set during the Gilded Age.
