Publisher's Summary

'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.

Life Renewing!

Tracy has outdone herself with this tale of love, family and the inexplicable twists of fate that life can hand us! She weaves a story from each of the characters unique points of view into one amazing saga of life, love & loss. Challenging us to discover who we each truly are and where our true happiness lies! I've read all of Tracy's books... but this one by far has been my most favorite! Thank you Tracy for so many many hours of shear literary enjoyment! You are an amazing author! Kate ♡
