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.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the twists and urns in the story. Sometimes I get a book that I cant wait to find out what happens but at the same time do not want the book to end. For me this was such a book

Exciting last couple of hours!

Slightly laboured first hours of the book. It only really got enthralling during the last few hours. If only it could have been as gripping from the start.
