Publisher Comments:

The #1 internationally bestselling author of The Forgotten Garden mesmerizes readers with this haunting tale of long-buried secrets and the twists of fate that can alter lives forever.

It starts with a letter, lost for half a century and unexpectedly delivered to Edie’s mother on a Sunday afternoon. The letter leads Edie to Milderhurst Castle, where the eccentric Blythe spinsters live and where, she discovers, her mother was billeted during World War II. The elder Blythe sisters are twins and have spent most of their lives caring for their younger sister, Juniper, who hasn’t been the same since her fiancé jilted her in 1941. Inside the decaying castle, Edie searches for her mother’s past but soon learns there are other secrets hidden in its walls. The truth of what happened in “the distant hours” has been waiting a long time for someone to find it. In this enthralling romantic thriller, Morton pays homage to the classics of gothic fiction, spinning a rich and intricate web of mystery, suspense, and lost love.

Synopsis:

Another unforgettable tale weaving history and mystery from the bestselling author of The House At Riverton and The Forgotten Garden.

Kate Morton has sadly written only three novels...so far. I have liked them all, but this was the most recent and perhaps the most intricate. All three involve a mystery, not a theft or murder but a family mystery of some sort. This one involves three elderly sisters living at Milderhurst where they have been for most of their lives. Percy and Saffy are twins born to their father's first wife. Juniper is their younger sister born to their father's second wife. Each sister carries part of the secret and it is not until a visitor, Edie, whose mother was evacuated to Milderhurst during the war, arrives that all the little pieces are revealed. Excellent and suspenseful without the blood and guts.
