Publisher's Summary

London, April 1912. The third Irish Home Rule Bill is passing through Parliament, and the situation is growing ever more tense. Closely involved in the negotiations, cabinet minister Edmund Latimer finds himself under growing pressure, which only intensifies when his seven-month-old niece, Lucy, is snatched away in her pram in Regent's Park.

Could there be a connection between Lucy’s kidnapping and the Irish talks? With her husband under intolerable strain, Edmund's wife, Alice, makes it her business to find out. But the more she discovers, the more she realises how little she really knows the man she married five years before.

    I love a good mystery. My favorite author right now is Edward Marston. I am enjoying the Great War Series.

    Where does Against the Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Against the Light?

    Many such moments. Marjorie Eccles takes you into the thoughts of her characters, so<br/>they have an additional layer or we can view them from a more nuanced perspective.


    Which character – as performed by Penelope Freeman – was your favorite?

    I liked the heroine of the book, the female doctor.
