‘A wonderful, engrossing novel, full of the most vivid characters and a actually memorable setting. A triumph’ Sophie Kinsella
‘She reels you in and then you’re hooked, right to the last page’ Patricia Scanlan
‘I find it irresistible on such a lot of levels, the immense feeling of place, the slow, impossible to resist sense of being drawn deep into the family and its story, and the abnormal hovering of menace somewhere in the idyll. Wonderful’ Penny Vincenzi
Tony and Althea Wilde. Glamorous, argumentative … adulterous to the core.
They were my parents, actors known by everyone. They gave our lives love and colour in a house by the sea – the house that sheltered my orphaned father when he was once a boy.
But the summer Mads arrived changed everything. She too had been abandoned and my father understood why. We Wildflowers took her in.
My father was once my hero, he gave us a golden childhood, but the past was once at all times going to catch up with him … it comes for us all, in the future.
This is my story. I am Cordelia Wilde. A singer without a voice. A daughter without a father. Let me take you inside.
Harriet Evans is ‘perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes and Maeve Binchy’ Best[amz_corss_sell asin=”B01MUG478J”]
