Devyn's Dilemma

By Susan G Mathis


1910, Thousand Islands, New York. Others may consider The Towers castle on Dark Island an enchanting summer retreat, but to Devyn McKenna, it’s a prison. Yet as she works as a maid for Frederick Bourne, former president of the Singer Sewing Machine Company, her life blossoms under the kindness of his family and fascinating entrepreneurs such as J.P. Morgan, Thomas Lipton, and Captain Vanderbilt. But more than anything, the growing friendship of Mr. Bourne’s valet, Brice McBride, begins to pry away the painful layers that conceal Devyn’s heart.

Brice is drawn to the mysterious Devyn even though he’s certain she’s hiding a secret, one far more dangerous than the clues they find in The Towers that hint of a treasure on the island. When Devyn is accused of stealing Bourne’s investment in Vanderbilt’s New York City subway expansion, he might not be able to protect her.

Book Takeaway:

Devyn's Dilemma is a story of recovering from abuse and finding oneself, letting go of past lies and embracing truth for the future.

Why the author wrote this book:

Growing up near the Thousand Islands, enjoying the interesting history of the Gilded Age, and swept up in the drama of Downton Abbey, I wanted to combine these and tell an intriguing story from the servants' perspectives.
