Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Six months after her husband's sudden death, Leonora Galloway sets off for a holiday in Paris with her daughter Penelope.  At last the time has come when secrets can be shared and explanations begin...

Their journey starts with an unscheduled stop at the imposing Thiepval Memorial to the dead of the Battle of the Somme near Amiens.  Amongst those commemorated is Leonora's father.  The date of his death is recorded and 30th  April, 1916.  But Leonora wasn't born until 14th March 1917.

Penelope at once supposes a simple wartime illegitimacy as the clue to her mother's unhappy childhood and the family's sundered connections with her aristocratic heritage, about which she has always known so little.

But nothing could have prepared her, or the reader, for the extraordinary story that is about to unfold.

Synopsis:

Spanning more than 50 years, this is a novel of dark secrets and extraordinary revelations. It starts when Leonora Galloway visits the war grave of her "father" and discovers that he was killed 11 months before she was born. The author's other books include "Into the Blue" and "Past Caring".
