Virgin Sacrifice

The Virgin Sacrifice concerns the fate of a young woman who inherits property on an island off the coast of Maine. The source of the inheritance, a reclusive old woman and distant relative, is unknown to her. Because of personal problems at work where she is a fashion design assistant, her depression over the fact that her fiancé is missing in Vietnam, and her desire to become more fully developed as an artist, she leaves New York for Maine.

There she finds herself becoming involved with the long-dead owner of the house, the father of the woman who willed it to her, and the only other residents, the director of the scientific laboratory on the north end of the island, and his sister.
