Stacey Halls has managed that rare thing – of bringing in to her writing the themes of the Brontes and Du Maurier without creating something that’s pastiche or overwrought. I loved this twisty, gothic tale which kept me guessing what was going on. Really beautifully written and exactly what you’d expect from the author of the brilliant novel, The Foundling. Understated plotting and brilliant story-telling, it’s a tale to get completely lost in.

What the Critics are Saying
Highly atmospheric and tense
Mesmerising, entrancing, a spellbinding novel of emotion and mystery, a heroine caught in an impossible world of twists, turns and lies. Gripping to the very last page.
Full of gothic menace, this Edwardian mystery is convincing and absolutely enthralling
Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City
Both dazzling and dark, as beautiful as it is disturbing. A captivating, sensuous novel
Inga Vesper, author of The Long, Long Afternoon
