Product description


this winning story of misplaced passion showcases the author's budding historical sensibilities (INDEPENDENT)

Touching prose and passion make this romance a must-read (BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

The woman in Helena Mayrick’s family have always led secretive and tragic lives. For generations they lived on the crumbling Suffolk coast which both nurtured and haunted them. When Helena’s comfortable marrriage is devastated by her husband’s violent death, it seems that she, too, is locked into the cycle.

Helena is invited to research a book on her grandfather, H. Donaldson, the celebrated Edwardian photographer. At first, she is reluctant to immerse herself in family history, particularly as Donaldsons’s relationship with her grandmother, Ruth, is shrouded in mystery and turmoil. But gradually, as the story of enigmatic Ruth and the elusive, passionate Donaldson unfolds, Helena finds that the past, like the present, was shaped by cruel dilemmas and the demands of love …

“This well-shaped and lovingly-crafted novel of domestic drama and emotion offers satisfying rewards. The theme of 'Footsteps' – that of the effects of misplaced, frequently repressed love and passion on succeeding generations of women – is put together with intelligence and feeling, a grasp of narrative pace and an empathy for the weather-buffeted Suffolk coast where it is set. The author’s touch is appealingly fresh and she succeeds in suggesting the complexity, waywardness and inexplicable patches that constitute life. A good read.”

“Irreducibly delicate and tough-minded.”
