The Snow Angel
The Snow Angel is a deliciously dark family saga from Lulu Taylor, the bestselling author of The Winter Folly.
A forbidden passion. A lifetime of consequences.
In 1960s London, Cressida Felbridge is living the high life as a debutante when she is courted by a friend of her brother's and set to marry. But as soon as she meets the painter Ralph Few, Cressie knows her life will never be the same again. Soon, she is deeply in love with Ralph, but there is one problem: Ralph is still married to Catherine. Soon, Cressie is drawn into a strange, triangular relationship. As Catherine's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, Ralph and Cressie escape to Cressie's family home in Cumbria. But Catherine will not give up Ralph that easily . . .
In the present day, Emily Conway has everything she could wish for: a huge house in West London, two beautiful children and a successful husband, Will. But as Emily and Will drive to a party, Will reveals that he has been betrayed by his business partner. Steering the car off the road at high speed, their perfect life is abruptly ended. When she wakes from her injuries, Emily is told of a mysterious legacy: a house in Cumbria on the edge of an estate, left to her by a woman she has never met. Could this house provide the chance to start anew, or must secrets be uncovered before it can be at peace?
An absorbing read that switches intriguingly between the Sixties and the present day.
