Synopsis

FOR FANS OF KATE MOSSE, PHILIPPA GREGORY AND DIANA GABALDON, COMES THIS POWERFUL TALE OF OBSESSION AND DESIRE.
York , 1577: Hawise Aske smiles at a stranger in the market, and sets in train a story of obsession and sibling jealousy, of love and hate and warped desire. Drowned as a witch, Hawise pays a high price for that smile, but for a girl like her in Elizabethan York, there is nowhere to go and nowhere to hide.

Four and a half centuries later, Grace Trewe, who has travelled the world, is trying to outrun the memories of being caught up in the Boxing Day tsunami. Her stay in York is meant to be a brief one.

But in York Grace discovers that time can twist and turn in ways she never imagined. Drawn inexorably into Hawise's life, Grace finds that this time she cannot move on. Will she too be engulfed in the power of the past?

In the media

A superbly haunting time-tripping story.

It is set in Tudor York, which is a glorious evocative setting. And if you love history, romance and ghosts, you'll love this.

York author Hartshorne weaves her own bit of magic with this bewitching tale.
