INVISIBLE EDEN, A STORY OF LOVE AND MURDER ON CAPE COD
-Maria Flook


• A New York Times Best Seller

A literary investigation about a shocking story that riveted the nation. On the surface, Christa Worthington’s life had the appearance of privilege and comfort. Friends were surprised when she turned her back on a sparkling career as a New York fashion journalist to return to a remote Cape Cod town to raise her out of wedlock baby. Found murdered in her seaside home, her toddler daughter clinging to her side, Christa’s secret life and a whole mysterious world soon emerged. Invisible Eden is the deeply felt story of a career woman’s attempt to “start over,” within the backdrop of Cape Cod’s haunted landscape, class wars between local residents, fishermen, and wealthy summer residents that together create a powerful chronicle of love and murder.
