When Emily commissions an account of novelist Hugh Morton, she finds herself steering a path between Morton's widow who's determined to protect his secrets and the charming and ambitious biographer Joel Richards. But someone is sending Emily messages about Hugh Morton's past and she discovers a buried story that has to be told... One winter's day in 1948, a chance meeting for 19-year old Isabel Barber, who has run away from home, leads to a fascinating career in publishing. But when she develops a close editorial relationship with charismatic young debut novelist Hugh Morton, the professional becomes passionately personal. Not only are all her plans put to flight, but she finds herself in a struggle for her very survival. Hore's suspenseful new novel evokes the milieux of London publishing past and present and connects the very different worlds of two young women, who through their individual quests for truth, love and happiness become inextricably linked.
