Product Description


'An entertaining read with lively characterisation, an attractively unassuming Second World War spy and neat plotting' Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph

Product Description

‘No one lives for ever. But the truth survives us all’

Kate Murray is deeply troubled. In front of her lies a dead man, a stranger who only minutes before had approached her wanting to tell her about a mystery, a long-forgotten murder. The crime was old, he’d told her, but still deserving of justice.

Soon Kate is caught up in a dangerous whirlwind of events that takes her back into her grandmother’s mysterious war-time past and across the Atlantic as she tries to retrace the dead man’s footsteps. Finding out the truth is not so simple, however, as only a few people are still alive who know the story…and Kate soon realises that her questions are putting their lives in danger. Stalked by an unknown and sinister enemy, she must use her tough journalistic instinct to find the answers from the past – before she has to say goodbye to her future.

More About the Author

I write modern gothic novels that blend historical adventure and modern-day suspense with romance and a touch of something spooky, so they don't fit neatly into any category, really...but they're fun to write!

I live on the north shore of Lake Ontario, east of Toronto, in Canada.

By L. Bretherton VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I only bought this because it came up as a recommendation since I had already bought Mariana and Sophia's Secret (my favourite, just LOVED that one..).

It is very different from those two books, no central romance and no time travel, for a start!

There is a story from the past though, as Kate tries to find out the secret of her grandmother's role during WWII, and investigates an alledged murder in wartime Lisbon.

There are far too many characters in it and I kept losing track of who was who. The first part of the book rattled along OK, but once the character of Matt appears, it all goes downhill a bit. The explanations of who was who and what was what back in the day are just far too long and wordy and I ended up skipping pages to get to the denouement, which was a bit of a let-down too.

The unrequited attraction between Deacon and Amelia is a very bittersweet tale and touchingly written, other than that, not a book I'd recommend to anyone, and unusually for me, I gave this to a charity shop rather than a friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars read it already 1 Nov 2010
I bought this book not realising that it was an Emma Cole novel that I had already read. Not sure if the title was the same though. Having said that, I decided to reread it and so far I am really enjoying it. It's a shame that the publisher did not take into consideration the description of Kate given in the book. She is clearly described as a redhead so who is the woman on the cover supposed to be?

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book and kept me absorbed until the end. I have not been able to forget it and have now bought it for a friend as I am sure she will enjoy it as much as I did. I would really recommen this to anyone who likes a bit of romance and intrigue and yet a beautiful touching story.
