Following the success of The Shape of Sand , shortlisted for the CWA Historical Dagger award, comes this dramatic story of love, war and intrigue.

It is 1910 and the bloodstained body of an unknown woman is found in the grounds of Sir Henry Chetwynd's Shropshire estate. It is a murder that unveils dark shadows of the past, and has an unexpected impact on the lives of Sir Henry Chetwynd and his family. But it is not only the Chetwynds whose lives lie under a shadow: Hannah, living in London, has lost part of her memory after being involved in a serious accident. As she attempts to piece together the fragments of those missing years, it seems that the ongoing murder investigation in Shropshire could hold the key, and finally allow her to bring the past and present strands of her life together.

Switching between the troubled South Africa in the last years of the nineteenth century and the mysterious murder in Shropshire ten years later, Marjorie Eccles' delicate narrative reveals the lies and deceptions concealed beneath the veneer of polite Edwardian society.
