Nothing is as it seems . . .

France, 1928. It is ten years since the Great War ended, but Freddie Watson is still haunted by the loss of his beloved brother. Driving through the foothills of the Pyrenees, his car spins off the road in a snowstorm. He takes refuge in an isolated village and there meets the captivating Fabrissa. They spend the night talking of love and loss and war.
By daybreak, Fabrissa has vanished and Freddie has discovered that he alone holds the key to an ancient mystery, one which leads him deep into the mountains and to a cave that conceals a shocking secret . . .

'A wonderfully haunting winter's tale. Stop the clock and read it in one sitting' She
'A great read . . . Mosse writes movingly about loss and atmospherically about France' Daily Mail
'Beautiful and haunting, this is a great story of love, loss and courage' Woman

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mosse's story-telling packs a punch * THE INDEPENDENT *
Beautiful and haunting, this is a great story of love, loss and courage. * WOMAN *
An absorbing tale of loss and remembrance in the aftermath of the First World War ... Mosse excels at transporting her readers into another time and another world ... Mosse's depiction of life in Southern France between the wars is utterly convincing * EXPRESS *
A poignant, spooky study of mourning and redemption * MARIE CLAIRE *
The themes of love, loss and remembrance are explored to create a wonderfully haunting winter's tale. Stop the clock and read it in one sitting * SHE *
An enchanting novella ... Mosse proves that she can weave a web of poignant and thrilling strands that will ensnare any reader * THE LADY *
This is a great read ... Mosse writes movingly about loss and atmospherically about France * DAILY MAIL *
It takes much of what appeals about her bestselling novels - and adds a heartbreaking story - what is really haunting about Mosse's tale is the rawness of Freddie's grief * THE TIMES *

“Classic Kate Mosse”

This book took me back to the Languedoc and reminded me of the excellent quality of Kate Mosse's books. It revived my interest in her and I have subsequently bought "Labyrinth" to re-read.
