House of Many Rooms

JACKET NOTES:  Marius Gabriel delivers a searing new novel of spellbinding suspense and haunting emotional impact that sweeps us into the most dangerous territories of the human heart. ‘House of Many Rooms’ is the story of a woman torn between the man she loves and the daughter she must save--at any cost.
The death of wealthy socialite Barbara Florio came as a shock o all who knew her. But no one is surprised that her estranged husband, Michael Florio, is suspected of setting the fire that killed her. Michael Florio had arrived at the Pacific Heights mansion just in time to save their two adopted daughters--but not his wife. Handsome, charismatic, and feared, Florio is a whose mysterious past is shadowed by an attraction to violence. Yet Florio seemingly has only one concern: to protect his daughters...one of whom all but admitted to murder.
Half a world away, Dr. Rebecca Carey is stunned to read of the events swirling around young Therese Florio. Thirteen years before, Rebecca had given Therese up for adoption. In her mother’s heart she knows Therese is innocent--and even if she isn't, Rebecca must return to accept the responsibility of her child. But what she finds after tracking the Florios to their hideway in the Italian countryside is not what she expects: a deeply troubled adolescent with a history of arson and a man whose charms are as complex as they are seductive. Rebecca had thought only of saving Therese. But soon she finds herself under the spell of the enigmatic, and possibly dangerous, Michael Florio.
A stranger in this land and family. Rebecca must measure every move she makes. She
doesn’t dare trust anyone. And as her mission to save her daughter clashes with her instinct to run from the dangerous man with whom she is becoming involved, Rebecca finds that what she always suspected is true: You can never turn back.
