The Secrets We Left Behind

LIST PRICE £8.99

*** From the author of the acclaimed The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood ***
It was a summer of love, and a summer of secrets…


She has built a good life: a husband who adores her, a daughter she is fiercely proud of, a home with warmth and love at its heart. But things were not always so good, and the truth is that she has done things she can never admit.

Then one evening a phone call comes out of the blue. It is a voice from long ago, from a past that she has tried so hard to hide. Scott knows who she really is and what she has done. Now he is dying and he gives her an ultimatum: either she tells the truth, or he will.

 And so we are taken back to that long hot summer of 1976 to a house by the sea, where her story begins and where the truth will be revealed…
