In Elizabethan York, young Nell Appleby is trapped in a chest, and a horror of the dark dogs her for the rest of her life. Wed to the sadistic Ralph Maskewe, Nell must find joy where she can, until her childhood sweetheart offers her escape to the New World.
Four and a half centuries later, Tess moves to York, eager to start a new life away from her overbearing husband. But time in York has a way of shifting strangely, and memories of a past that is not her own begin to surface....
"A rattling good read." (York Press)
"What a terrific novel. I really enjoyed it and became deeply involved in the lives of the two heroines." (Elizabeth Buchan)
"A very enjoyable read and the story is intriguing from the beginning as you engage with both the characters, leaving you wanting to read more. I find that Pamela's knowledge of 16th Century York fascinating and the historical detail is very interesting and compliments the story perfectly." (Yorkshire Times)
