Meeting the neighbours... from the present and the past
When Alice Hart's husband runs off with his secretary, she runs off with his dogs to lick her wounds in a North Yorkshire village. Battling with loneliness but trying to make the best of her new start, she soon meets her neighbours including drop dead gorgeous builder Richard Wainwright and the kindly yet reticent Owen Maltby.
As Alice employs Richard to renovate the barn next to her house all is not what it seems. Why does she start seeing Owen when he clearly isn't there? Where - or when - does the strange crying come from? And if Owen is the village charmer then what exactly does this mean?
"I desperately want to find out about Owen; a fascinating character... the gift here is to make you want to read on." Jeffery Archer
"I really loved the authorial voice - it really drew me in. But more than that I loved the fact that the initial mystery posed is one that I could not think of a possible solution for, so that really got me hooked." Sophie Hannah
