When beautiful debutante Cathryn Brocklehurst meets dashing aristocrat Nicolas Abingdon, it is love at first sight, even though he is some 20 years older than her. Cathryn’s parents are vehemently against the match, for Nicholas has been married before. The besotted couple defy parental opposition and society’s disapproving whispers to wed, but their happiness is short-lived.
The body of a young child is found in woodland on the Abingdon estate, stirring memories of the mysterious disappearance of a laundry-woman’s daughter. As police and press descend upon Buckland Place, long-buried grudges and simmering family feuds come to the surface, threatening all that Cathryn holds dear.

I found this book to be a very easy listen and I enjoyed the storyline - somewhat predictable but still a good "read" on a rainy day. I also loved the voice of the narrator and think she did a great job with all the different characters. I will look for more books by this author.
