'Tracy Rees is the most outstanding new voice in historical fiction.' (Lucinda Riley)
It's 2014. Sensible Nora has always taken success for granted until suddenly her life begins to fall apart. Troubled by anxiety and nightmares, she finds herself drawn to the sweeping beaches of Tenby, a place she's been only once before. Together with a local girl, she rents a beautiful townhouse and slowly begins to settle in to her new life. But Tenby hides a secret, and Nora will soon discover that this little town by the sea has the power to heal even the most painful memories.
It's 1950. Teenager Chloe visits Tenby every summer. She stays with relatives and spends the long, idyllic days on the beach. Every year is the same until she meets a glamorous older boy and is instantly smitten. But on the night of their first date, Chloe comes to a realisation, the aftermath of which could haunt her forever.
The Hourglass is a moving novel about reinvention and reconciliation, about finding love even after it seems too late, about family and the healing power of a magical place by the sea.
