ONE OF RED MAGAZINE'S TOP TEN BOOKS . . .

'Wonderfully atmospheric and utterly engrossing. I hardly moved until I had read to the very last word' AJ Pearce, author of Dear Mrs Bird


'A beautiful and intriguing page-turner, where the secrets of the past cast long shadows. Cornwall springs to life in vivid colour' Dinah Jefferies

----------

Cornwall, 1940.

In the hushed hours of deepest night a young woman is found washed up on the rocks.

Was it a tragic accident? Or should the residents of Penhallow have been more careful about whom they invited in?

In the midst of war three women arrive seeking safety at Penhallow Hall.

Each is looking to escape her past.

But one of them is not there by choice.

As the threat of invasion mounts and the nightly blackouts feel longer and longer, tensions between the close-knit residents rise until dark secrets start to surface.

And no one can predict what their neighbour is capable of . . .

In a house full of strangers, who do you trust?

“Twisty plot and beautifully written”

Loved the Cornish coast, brought to life so vividly, and the engaging cast of characters, lives thrown together or reconnecting in wartime. A twisty plot kept the pages turning, as did the beautiful prose.

“A multi-faceted Cornish gem”

This is an achingly beautiful book - a wistful, wartime setting and a tricksy main character with modern sensibilities. A body is found on the beach, around about the same time as a young woman - Diana Devlin - goes... More
