Publisher's Summary

A life-changing gift with a shadowy origin - a dark and suspenseful debut novel.
1966. A horrifying crime at a secondary school, with devastating consequences for all involved.
2008. A life-changing gift, if only the recipient can work out why....
Recently divorced, and with two young children, Ellen Sutherland is up to her elbows in professional and personal stress. When she's invited to travel all the way to Cheltenham to hear the content of an old woman's will, she's far from convinced the journey will be worthwhile. But when she arrives, the news is astounding.
Eudora Nash has left Ellen a beautiful cottage worth an amount of money that could turn her life around. There's just one problem: Ellen has never even heard of Eudora Nash. Her curiosity piqued, Ellen and her friend Kate travel to the West Country in search of answers. But they are not the only ones interested in the cottage, and Ellen little imagines how much she has to learn about her past.


What the Critics Say

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, I read approximately 2 books a week. I LOVE this type of book where it flips back and forth. However, this book was ridiculous! I was constantly rewinding/ flipping back pages because I felt the author kept leaving out something or was just missing something all together.
