During the 1870s diamond rush in southern Africa, Clementine is left to be raised by her destitute father following the death of her mother. Her care falls largely to their companion, Joseph, and the two form an unbreakable bond.

When the two men uncover a large, flawless diamond, a dark bargain is struck to ensure Clementine's return to a respectable life in northern England. Her father believes he has finally secured their future, but the discovery of the gem comes at a considerable cost.

Years later, Clementine must confront long-buried memories of her childhood to solve the mystery of what happened to her loved ones all those years ago.

Can she find the justice she seeks?

A delightful saga! Clementine was only young when she left England with her parents in order for her father to make his fortune. On the death of her mother, she is left very much in the care of her father’s partner, Joseph, while her father struggles to cope with mining for diamonds each day. When they finally strike lucky, arrangements are made to return to Clem’s family home in Northern England where she will be able to live the life her mother would have wished for her. Years later, events arise which cause Clementine to try and recall the events of those troubled times and discover the truth of matters which are puzzling her. This is a beautifully written tale which unfolds in a clever manner to keep the reader enthralled from start to finish in this charming novel. Clementine is a marvellous character who retains her fondness for those who were kind to her in childhood until many years into the future. She is a trusting soul but sooner or later doubts begin to creep into her mind about certain people and events; she isn’t the kind of person to let things go until she has tracked down the truth. This is very much Clementine’s story and it is a charming one but by no means a light one – there is real depth to this book and I enjoyed it very much. Definitely an author to look out for, and I’m both happy to recommend this one and give 4.5*.
