Description

Deep in the English countryside, Marshwood has always been much more than just a house. It has been a place to escape to and a trap, the backdrop for elegant parties and a wartime hospital, an idyllic escape from trauma and unhappy marriages. When the roof starts to cave in and the money runs out, eighty-year-old Bella resists the pressure to sell and instead begins to peel back the layers of the past. As this imposing house gives up its secrets of marriage, war and forbidden love, patterns begin to repeat themselves when Bella's granddaughter's childhood sweetheart returns from the war in Bosnia. Like so many before him, Jack comes seeking solace. But he also wants Isla, who is - who really should be - unavailable to him. And as all three characters explore whether you can ever truly go back, the past and the present collide with shattering consequences.show more

About Natasha Farrant

Natasha Farrant previously worked in publishing and now runs her own children's literary scouting agency. She grew up in the heart of the French community in London, and has therefore never considered herself as completely English, although certainly not completely French, which makes for a quite interesting view of the world. Natasha is in her thirties, and lives in West London with her husband and two children.show more
