    DescriptionIt is 1947, and Evie and Martin Mitchell have just arrived in the Indian village of Masoorla with their five-year-old son. But cracks soon appear in their marriage as Evie struggles to adapt to her new life, and Martin fails to bury unbearable wartime memories. When Evie finds a collection of letters, concealed deep in the brickwork of their rented bungalow, so begins an investigation that consumes her, allowing her to escape to another world, a hundred years earlier, and to the extraordinary friendship of two very different young women. And as Evie's fascination with her Victorian discoveries deepens, she unearths powerful secrets. But at what cost to her present, already fragile existence?

    Back cover copy
    It is 1947 when Evie and Martin Mitchell, and their five-year-old son, move to their new home at the foot of the Himalayas. But cracks appear in their marriage as Martin, a Jewish veteran of WWII, fails to bury unbearable wartime memories. When Evie finds a packet of old, damaged letters concealed deep in the brickwork of their bungalow, she becomes captivated by the scandalous story they tell, and the friendship of two unconventional Victorian women. But at what cost will this sudden obsession be to Evie’s own, fragile existence?
