She longed for a fresh start. But her past would not let her go.

Ellen Trawton has been dreaming of peace and quiet, away from the chaos of London and family pressure to conform. Where better than the sweeping landscape of Connemara, to stay with an aunt she barely knows, in a place she can cut off all contact with the past?

But beneath the beauty of the Irish landscape lie secrets which have been hidden for years.

Conor Macausland cuts a dark, lonely figure. His young wife, Caitlin, died tragically at the old lighthouse, and her loss has hit him hard. But when he and Ellen come across each other a connection sparks between them.

Ellen soon realizes that Conor’s past is not all it seems, and there’s more to her family history than she knew too. And, as the secrets of the past are finally revealed, the truth must be told.

A compelling story of a divided family, hidden pasts and a love that will never die…

Reviews

Montefiore has penned a lyrical novel rich with ghostly beings, love, and loss.
Publishers Weekly

She can certainly spin an intriguing tale, and as a first-time reader, I'll be plundering her back catalogue for other sweeping tales of love, death and a life beyond our mortal limits. Rowena Walsh
