Set in London, rural England and Italy, this is a dual timeline story about discovery and love through a series of abandoned letters.
Brilliantly written, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Unfortunately, digging into the past to reveal some buried secrets through the bundle of letters, is becoming a rather overworked device. Nevertheless Ms Hore uses many other ways for her characters to find out the truth of the mysteries of the past. There are also sufficient twists in the tale, to keep the reader hooked.
Most of the characters were credible with the exception of Briony who I found a little insipid. The story flowed from Italy to Norfolk to London both in 1930's and early '40's and the present day.
Not wishing to spoil the story, I did think that Ivor would have spoken up and tried to ruin what was going on after the War with Sarah and Paul. I'm not sure that would have carried on with no one making any comment.
However it was a very enjoyable read and I am so pleased Rachel Here has found her touch again.
