After a strange and alarming phone call from her elderly uncle Pete gets abruptly cut off, kindergarten teacher Betsy McGovern returns to her hometown of Eagle Point, Maine. She soon learns that her beloved uncle Pete and godmother, Lily Mae Warren, the lighthouse keeper of Eagle Point Light, have been kidnapped. Eagle Point sheriff Francis Willette helps Betsy unravel the puzzling family secrets and shocking local murders that welcome her home. Betsy and the handsome sheriff sort out the clues to the case while they sort out the feelings they have for each other. Betsy also has to keep Eagle Point Light burning. Watching her back might not be a bad idea, either. With two dead bodies and no solid suspects, Betsy and Francis frantically work to solve the case and bring Betsy's loved ones home before they become the final victims in an elaborate scheme to keep past secrets hidden.
During the early 1930s, after James Gould Cozzens had published four romantic novels and then withdrawn them from circulation, he wrote the first three of what Brenden Gill called his eight “canonical works.” But it was only after the publication of By Love Possessed in 1957 that he achieved wide popularity. Mooney closely examines each of Cozzens’ novels, isolating and defining his main themes and addressing the critical acclaim and condemnation of his works. Among the novels Mooney analyzes are: S.S. San Pedro, Castaway, The Last Adam, Men and Brethren, Ask Me Tomorrow, The Just and the Unjust, Guard of Honor, and By Love Possessed.
