Inheriting the home of a great Aunt is the trigger for the family to move from rented accommodation into this, their new home. The move involves them undertaking lots of repairs and renovations and uncovering family history that they were previously totally unaware of. Love letters and photographs left in the cellar, writing on the wall and a pearl locket together help instigate the family into researching their past as it seems in danger of taking over the life of the daughter of the family.
Told in two time periods – the preset day and during the second World War, it is a tale of love found and lost, separated and reunited. It is a heartbreaking story, definitely different, that takes the reader into the family, encouraging them to share their experiences and emotions as stories from the part impact on the present and future for everyone concerned – including unexpected family and friends who help resolve and explain events. This is a mystery thriller that will keep the reader enthralled right to the very end!
