“When Lissa Byrne inherits her grandfather’s house in
the Malvern Hills, the hostility of disappointed
relatives seems like trouble enough. The old man’s
dying plea for her forgiveness is a mystery that Lissa
cannot begin to solve.

“Her cousin’s arrival forces her to think again. Kit
Pevensey, her first love and once her closest friend,
has been gone for five years and has regrets of his
own; but their grandfather wrote to Kit just before he
died, with a warning that Lissa is in danger.

“As Lissa and Kit try to rebuild their relationship,
events draw them ever deeper into their family’s
troubled history. The race is on, from the Malvern
Hills to the snow-swept coast of West Wales, to
unearth the story of a lost generation before it’s too
late—for the past can do worse than haunt your
dreams and betray your most treasured memories.”

Jill Todd lives in Hampshire. She is a regular visitor to the Malverns, where several family members have lived for many years.
