Synopsis

'A gifted storyteller' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent



THE PAGE-TURNING NEW NOVEL FROM THE AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE WITCHFINDER'S SISTER



_______



I still dream, every night, of Polneath on fire. Smoke unfurling out of an upper window and a hectic orange light cascading across the terrace...



By day, Ivy Boscawen mourns the loss of her son Tim in the Great War. But by night she mourns another boy - one whose death decades ago haunts her still.



For Ivy is sure that there is more to what happened all those years ago: the fire at the Great House, and the terrible events that came after. A truth she must uncover, if she is ever to be free.



But once you open a door to the past, can you ever truly close it again?



From the award-winning author of The Witchfinder's Sister comes a captivating story of burning secrets and buried shame, and of the loyalty and love that rises from the ashes.



'Brilliantly twisty, dripping with mystery and utterly heartbreaking' Emily Koch



'A Cornish landscape evocative of Daphne du Maurier . . . brilliantly plotted' Louise Hare



'Absorbing, beautifully written... Everything I enjoy in a gothic mystery' Rosie Andrews



'Captivating and elegant and undoubtedly a future classic' Lucie McKnight Hardy
