A reluctant heir to the estate, Sebastian Chetwynd is already battling with divided loyalties: his ambition for a career of his own and his fathers expectation that he follow in his footsteps, and his duty to marry for money when he is in love with Louisa, a student doctor and supporter of womens rights.Unknown to the Chetwynds, there is Hannah, living in London, who has lost her memory of everything that happened in the dozen years previous to a serious accident.

In an attempt to unravel her past, Hannah writes down the story of her life as far as she can remember it. As she reaches out to grasp and piece together the fragments of those missing years, it seems that the ongoing murder investigation in Shropshire could hold the key.Switching between troubled South Africa in the last years of the nineteenth century and the murder in England ten years later, Marjorie Eccless delicate narrative reveals the lies and deceptions that have lain beneath the veneer of polite Edwardian society.
