Kate Lawrence has a problem with death. It won’t leave her alone. She’s tuned into its shadows, whether it’s happening a hundred miles away or whether it happened a hundred years ago. In her struggle to cope with her unwelcome gift, she has frozen people out of her life. Her marriage is on the rocks, her career is in chaos and she urgently needs to get a grip. So she decides to start again, by joining her effervescent cousiin Sylvia and partner Michael in their mission to restorie and revitalise an old mansion in the wilds of North Pembrokeshire.
It is certainly a new start, but it takes Kate to a place that is bound to be thick with the shadows of past deaths. She is determined to learn to face them down – so determined that she fails to notice new shadows that are erupting around her. Shadows that, perhaps, she is helping to cast.
“This was one of those stories with a bit of everything – strong and sympathetic characters, well drawn and sometimes complex emotions and relationships, real shocks and surprises, a real edge of darkness and evil, a wonderful sense of place with superb descriptions, a touch of romance, a cracking story.”
Anne Williams (Being Anne)
“Along with the unsettling ‘shadows’ the book trails a meticulously drawn cast of characters in its wake. The writing is sharp, witty and ironic; the story beautifully paced.”
