'Sweeps you away to an Ireland of the past and leaves you utterly enthralled' MARIAN KEYES
A dazzling, sumptuous historical novel from the author of Liberty Silk
Two women living a hundred years apart. One home that binds them together.
When Edie Chadwick travels to Ireland to close up her uncle’s lakeside lodge, it’s as much to escape the burden of guilt she’s carrying as to break loose from the smart set of 1930’s London.
The old house is full of memories – not just her own, but those of a woman whose story has been left to gather dust in a chest in the attic: a handwritten memoir inscribed with an elegant signature . . . Eliza Drury
As she turns the pages of the manuscript, Edie uncovers secrets she could never have imagined: an exciting tale of ambition, hardship, love and tragedy – a story that has waited a lifetime to be told. . .

“Lightness of touch with wonderful scene-setting, a brace of brave and independent female characters who nest in your imagination and refuse be evicted - and William Thackeray to boot... Settle in and enjoy.”
“An enchanting tale of two women across the centuries, and their love for the same house . . . This is a tale to sweep you back into Irish history, full of poetry and humour”
