Publisher's Summary

The start of a series from bestselling author Sarah Bennett.

On paper, Hope Travers has an idyllic life.

Living in a bustling farmhouse with her mum, aunt and uncles, cousin and too many dogs to count, surrounded by the breath-taking Cotswolds countryside, she knows she is privileged and protected.

But all families have secrets, and the Travers family are no exception. Their farmhouse sits in the grounds of the Juniper Meadows estate, passed down through the generations and now being made to pay its own way with a myriad of businesses and projects. When a construction crew uncover what appear to be historical ruins, the history of the Travers family is put under ever closer scrutiny as a dig gets underway.

Hope may have found a blossoming romance with local archaeologist Cameron Ferguson who is running the dig, but when things start to go wrong around the estate and family secrets begin to be revealed, Hope wonders if she’s made a big mistake in digging up the past.

A good story concept, loved the archeology and the setting.

It's hard to explain, but if I am going to criticise the story, then I better do it constructively. The protagonist characterization really annoyed me. Hope is a contradiction. Her whinging about her mother's decision to protect her from her abusive father, made me grind my teeth. A capable gritty heroine would not act like that. I am so sick of the emotional coddling that has become pervasive in our society. Our western world is a laughing stock and we are not doing the young people any favors either. As a writer, have a bit of vision and stop creating weak women around whom everyone has to tip toe. I have read at least seven of your books and you let the characters down through the political correctness that bleeds through and detracts from the wonderful story concepts that kept me reading. If your editor is pushing this under some misguided idea that a majority of the readers want an emotionally weak character, don't listen. The silent majority who want strong, realistic women and men are the ones who will ultimately buy the books, not the few woke idiots. I will finish this series, because I am a completionist reader, but I am going think twice before giving you another chance.

Ended mid story

I’ve committed 11 hours of my life to this story to only have it end without resolving any of the problems that were built up to the climax. The end was a cliffhanger even adding the padding out of a minor character and her issues to the mix! I wish I never read it.
