From the Back Cover

From the present day . . .

Applecote Manor captivates Jessie with its promise of hazy summers in the Cotswolds. She believes it's the perfect escape for her troubled family. But the house has an unsettling history, and strange rumours surround the estate.

To the fifties . . .

When teenage Margot and her three sisters arrive at Applecote in the heatwave of '59, they find their aunt and uncle still reeling from the disappearance of their daughter Audrey five years before.

The sisters are drawn into the mystery of Audrey's vanishing - until the stifling summer takes a shocking, deadly turn. Will one unthinkable choice bind them together, or tear them apart?

Step back in time for a richly evocative mystery, where the beauty of a Cotswolds summer is vividly contrasted with the violence which shatters it.

'The most beautiful book you will read this year' LISA JEWELL

'Beautifully written with a gripping plot' KATIE FFORDE

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I'm an author who writes rich suspenseful novels about families - dysfunctional, passionate - and the sort of explosive secrets that can rip them apart. I write stories that I'd love to read. Mysteries. Page-turners. Worlds you can lose yourself in. Reading time is so precious: I try to make my books worthy of that sweet spot.

My office is a garden studio/shed. There are roses outside. I live in Oxford with my three children, husband, and a ridiculously hairy golden retriever, Harry.

Do say hello. Wave! Tweet me! I love hearing from readers. I'm on Twitter and Instagram @EvePollyChase and on Facebook, eve.chase.author.

'Eve Chase is an extraordinary writer. No one creates families as complex, loveable and utterly believable as Chase and she is the master of the dual time frame narrative.’ Lisa Jewell, no.1 bestselling author of The Family Upstairs and Then She Was Gone
