Six years have passed since her cousin and best friend Mary was murdered. Sarah Woodward still feels guilty over abandoning Mary after her cousin married Peter Holland. Though there is no solid evidence, Sarah is convinced that Peter killed his spouse, which, in turn, led to the blinding of their child from flying glass during the incident.
When Peter advertises for an instructor to a blind child, Sarah sees this as the opportunity to investigate her beloved Mary's murder. When Sarah meets Peter, she is shocked by the depth of emotiom he feels for his son, and the degree of guilt and loneliness he feels over Mary's death. She is even more astonished to find herself falling in love with a person she has been demonizing since 1880. To Peter's amazement, the arrival of Mary has pulled him out of the depths of despair and given him new hope. However, if Peter did not kill Mary, someone else did and they still lurk in the shadows, perhaps regarding Sarah as their next target.
PERFECT IN MY SIGHT is a brilliantly scribed American gothic that brings to life late nineteenth century New York. The lead characters brilliantly portray a pair of guilt-laden individuals, who find a second chance with the other. The historical story line blends elements of suspense and romance into a gothic setting that could only have scribed by a terrific talent like Tanya Anne Crosby.
