This incredible debut historical novelâ€”in the tradition of
Beatriz Williams and Jennifer Robsonâ€”tells the fascinating
story of a young mother who flees her home on the rocky
cliffs of Cornwall and the daughter who finds her way back,
Cornwall, 1940. Back in England after the harrowing
evacuation at Dunkirk, WWII Red Cross nurse Anna Trenowyth
is shocked to learn her adoptive parents Graham and Prue
Handley have been killed in an air raid. She desperately
needs their advice as sheâ€™s been assigned to the military
hospital that has set up camp inside her biological motherâ€™s
childhood homeâ€”Nanreath Hall. Anna was just six-years-old
when her mother, Lady Katherine Trenowyth, died. All she has
left are vague memories that tease her with clues she canâ€™t
unravel. Annaâ€™s assignment to Nanreath Hall could be the
chance for her to finally become acquainted with the family
sheâ€™s never knownâ€”and to unbury the truth and secrets
surrounding her past.
Cornwall, 1913. In the luxury of pre-WWI England, Lady
Katherine Trenowyth is expected to do nothing more than make
a smart marriage and have a respectable life. When Simon
Halliday, a bohemian painter, enters her world, Katherine
begins to question the future that was so carefully laid out
for her. Her choices begin to lead her away from the
stability of her home and family toward a wild existence of
life, art, and love. But as everything begins to fall apart,
Katherine finds herself destitute and alone.
As Anna is drawn into her newfound familyâ€™s lives and their
tangled loyalties, she discovers herself at the center of
old heartbreaks and unbearable tragedies, leaving her to
decide if the secrets of the past are too dangerous to
unearthâ€¦and if the family sheâ€™s discovered is one she can keep.
