My real name, no one remembers. The truth about that summer, no one else knows.

In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor on the banks of the Upper Thames. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins.

Over one hundred and fifty years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items: a sepia photograph of an arresting-looking woman in Victorian clothing, and an artist’s sketchbook containing the drawing of a twin-gabled house on the bend of a river.

Why does Birchwood Manor feel so familiar to Elodie? And who is the beautiful woman in the photograph? Will she ever give up her secrets?

In that sense, I liked that it covered a lot of ground (from the 1860s to the present) and that the ending was left so open: things don't end nea...

2.0 Disappointing
Never thought I would say this about a Kate Morton book - I have enjoyed her stories in the past, she is a wonderful storyteller, and I look forward to many more. But, this one was a disappointment, especially at the end. My opinion is there were too many characters and storylines whose threads we...
