Publisher's Summary

Living on her family’s gorgeous lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, clever, inquisitive, innocent, and precociously talented 14 year old who loves to write stories. But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endure....

One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest son, Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined, leaving their estate as empty as their broken hearts.

Nearly 60 years later, having enjoyed a long, successful career as an author, Alice is now 80 years old and living in London. Theo’s case has never been solved, though Alice still harbours a suspicion as to the culprit.

Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old estate - now crumbling and covered with vines, clearly abandoned long ago. Her curiosity is sparked, setting off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone... yet more present than ever.

A lush, atmospheric tale of intertwined destinies, this latest novel from a masterful storyteller is spellbinding and satisfying.

    "Spellbinding!"

    The spine-tingling tale keeps the reader mesmerised from start to finish! The overall reading is excellent, but I was a little disappointed at her failure to mimic the different people's voices. Sometimes I found it difficult to know who was supposed to be speaking.

    I would recommend Kate Morton's book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery!

    "Great story but would love a better narrator"

    I love Kate Morton's stories and I'm so disappointed they're stuck with a poor narrator. The Australian creeping into the poor attempt at an accent is just too irritating (especially as an Aussie!). I wish they'd choose an English narrator so I could fully enjoy the beautiful writing.
