From the Sunday Times bestselling author comes an epic tale of love, passion and heartbreak.

In the summer of 1940, eyes are focussed on the skies above the South of England: the Battle for Britain has just begun. But Evie Lucas has eyes for no-one but a dashing young pilot called Tony. Evie has a glittering career as an artist ahead of her but seems only to be fascinated in sketching portraits of him...

Seventy years later, recently widowed art historian Lucy is putting the pieces of her life back together, and to do that she needs to uncover the mystery surrounding a painting in her home. As Lucy ties up the loose ends of one lifetime, she stirs up a hornet's nest of history in another. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself in danger from people past and present who have no intention of letting an untold truth ever surface.

Some stories are buried in the darkness forever. Some are just waiting to be told...

A gripping tale of art, passion and deceit set in wartime Britain and the present day, with a supernatural presence.

I enjoyed this book: a romantic historical thriller, with a generous serving of art and the supernatural. Looking forward to reading more books by this author.

It was an unnecessarily long, very slow moving book that had too many unlikeable and one-dimensional characters. I also saw the ending coming from a mile away. From now on I think I'll stick with Susanna Kearsley to get my supernatural/Gothic fix.
