Publisher's Summary

At once a compelling murder mystery and a moving exploration of love and grief, critically acclaimed author Nicola Upson's eighth Josephine Tey mystery is a force to be reckoned with. 

In the summer of 1915, the sudden death of a young girl brings grief and notoriety to Charleston Farmhouse on the Sussex Downs. 

Years later, Josephine Tey returns to the same house - now much changed - and remembers the two women with whom she once lodged as a young teacher during the Great War. As past and present collide, with murders decades apart, Josephine is forced to face the possibility that the scandal which threatened to destroy those women's lives hid a much darker secret.

sorry for the dead

Not as good as previous books in this series. It was rather laboured in parts

Captivating but with a ‘but’ at the end.

I will not do a spoiler of the plot here.....however . The story kept me hooked and Nicola did a good job of different times and the happenings taking us back in order to understand the now of the book. I loved the references made to places East Sussex and Lewes being very familiar to me. BUT no to the murderer and the complexity of guilt and shame that hang around the book....even if the prejudices of the time were true are unbelievable.
