Publisher's Summary

Secrets and haunting mysteries.... A wonderfully powerful and poignant historical novel from the author of the TV Book Club best seller The Legacy.
Bath, 1821: Rachel Crofton escapes her unhappy employment as a governess by marrying a self-made businessman. But her new life soon takes an unexpected turn. Reclusive Jonathan Alleyn is a man tormented by the disappearance of his childhood sweetheart, Alice. Starling, foundling child and now servant, is convinced that Alice, the woman she loved as a sister, was stolen from her. Did Alice run away? Or did something altogether more sinister occur?
As Starling tries to expose the lies behind Bath's immaculate facades, others want only to forget, and will go to extreme lengths to do so. And the courage both Rachel and Starling need to bring these truths to light will come at a very high price.... Read by Jacqueline King.

Great story,romance and secrets galore

This book draws you in to its tangle of secrets and you are compelled to keep listening to find out more. It's packed full of intrigue, cover ups, rocky romance, clashes between social classes and the impact of the horrors of war on those who endured it. The descriptions are so good you can almost feel the dampness and smell the rank air. The characters are all very strong, some more likeable than others - Jacqueline King's naration is excellent and she brings each character to life.
This is a wonderful tale that holds your attention from beginning to end.
