Description

Two sisters. One heartbreaking secret. And a past that cannot stay buried.In the depths of a harsh winter, Erica and Beth Calcott return to the house where they spent idyllic summers as children.

As Erica sorts through her late grandmother's belongings, strange fragments of family history and vivid memories break from the surface of the present day...Memories of their cousin, Henry, who disappeared one summer long ago, and of their grandmother, a bitter woman, full of a deep, dark hatred.

As Erica sifts through remnants of the past, a secret emerges, reaching all the way back to a beautiful heiress in turn-of-the-century Oklahoma. As past and present converge, Erica and Beth must come to terms with two terrible acts of betrayal and the heartbreaking legacy left behind.

Our customer reviews

This book gave so much more than I expected. The two stories running together gave the story great depth and gave a sense of understanding to each of the characters. To me however, I found myself sometimes rushing through the modern day story trying to get to the next chapter - knowing it would be more information about Caroline & her life. I couldn't help but get choked up every time I read something about Caroline & Corin ... I want to know more about them. A brilliant readshow more
