Hidden deep in the dusty wing of an old manor house stands a locked room, forgotten by all – except one. Sixty years ago Lillian Oberon was mistress of Cloudesley, until one glittering summer, when a doomed love affair changed her life forever.

Now frail and muddled, Lillian is the sole guardian of Cloudesley, and of its dark secrets. Only when Maggie, her devoted granddaughter, returns to nurse her – and her own heartbreak – do the walls of the past begin to crumble, threatening to bring the tragic consequences of that summer to light…

Can Maggie unlock her family’s tangled history, before all she holds dear is lost forever?
