During a visit to her aging Uncle Edward and his sister Lucia, who both harbour dark secrets of their own, Tina makes a discovery that forces her to finally question her memories of the day her sister died. Who, if anyone, did kill Meg? As Tina finds the courage to face the past, she unravels the tangled family mysteries of her estranged parents, her beautiful French Aunt Simone, the fading, compassionate Uncle Edward, and above all, the cold, bitter Aunt Lucia, whose spectral presence casts a long shadow over them all.

What a sad story about family secrets and tragedy. Tina always thought that she was responsible for her twin sister’s death all those years before and could never move on from that until the truth finally emerged. A very tangled family with dark secrets but peace and happiness for Tina and Keaton at last.
The Author Louise Walters. An author who envelops you in the characters and storyline so much that you have difficulty putting the book down. Very well written.
