a desperate fortune by susanna kearsley

For nearly 300 years, the mysterious journal of Jacobite exile Mary Dundas has lain unread — its secrets safe from prying eyes. Now, amateur code breaker Sara Thomas has been hired by a once-famous historian to crack the journal’s cipher and deliver its contents.

But when she arrives in Paris, Sara finds herself besieged by complications from all sides: the journal’s reclusive owner, her charming Parisian neighbor, and Mary, whose journal doesn’t hold the secrets Sara expects. As Mary’s gripping tale is revealed, Sara is faced with challenges that will require letting go of everything she thought she knew – about herself, about loyalty, and especially about love.
