Publisher's Summary

Living on her family’s gorgeous lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, clever, inquisitive, innocent, and precociously talented 14-year-old who loves to write stories. But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endure....
One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest son, Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined, leaving their estate as empty as their broken hearts.
Nearly 60 years later, having enjoyed a long, successful career as an author, Alice is now 80 years old and living in London. Theo’s case has never been solved, though Alice still harbours a suspicion as to the culprit.
Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old estate - now crumbling and covered with vines, clearly abandoned long ago. Her curiosity is sparked, setting off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone...yet more present than ever.
A lush, atmospheric tale of intertwined destinies, this latest novel from a masterful storyteller is spellbinding and satisfying.

Accents

It's such a great pity that a great book has been ruined by the accents that the narrator has tried without success to mimic! It would have been much better to have found a person from the UK to narrate this book. Or not try to mimic the various accents at all. It spoils the overall feel of the story. I have to be honest, such a wonderful story though.

What is that accent thing all about?!

I'm still listening, and really enjoying the story, but the accents are bizarre, to say the least! The attempt at a Cornish accent is in fact more like some sort of Scottish/Irish pirate mash up!
There is also some weird mockney in their too - dropping Ts randomly appears to be the general approach there.
I've listened to a few audio books narrated by this woman, and they're great, but those required her native Australian accent.
This is torture, and it's really detracting from the story for me.
