Summary

A new emotional and gritty drama from the best-selling author of The Throwaway Children.  

After her mother's death, 20-year-old Sophie Ross is left orphaned, with only her erstwhile nursemaid and faithful friend, Hannah, for company. Penniless and with little chance of an income, she looks for work as a governess in London to avoid destitution.  

But unbeknownst to Sophie, her mother instructed Hannah to post a letter to Trescadinnick House in Cornwall upon her death. The letter will be the catalyst that changes Sophie's life forever as she learns of her mother's doomed romance and family she left behind in Cornwall.  

The Penvarrow family welcomes Sophie into their fold, but the new life she's built is threatened by secrets and lies that soon come to light....

Diney Costelor

She had true talent with her writing to capture the audience to want to go right through to the end. Wondering what happens to the characters. Thank you Diney

disappointing

I've read several books from this author which I've enjoyed. I thought sisters of St. Crox was brilliant and more recently Forgotten children I thoroughly enjoyed but whilst a pleasant story this one was far to Mills and Boon

Didn't grip me

I was disappointed with this book. Compared to Dineys other work this didn't keep me. I actually skipped through a lot but still picked up the story regardless.
