CAN YOUR IMAGINATION RUN AWAY WITH YOU…?
It is 1942, and Clare is awaiting the birth of her first child. Her husband, Will, is away fighting, and alone in their cottage in the Sussex village of Firlebury, she waits anxiously for news. Her worries increase when, accompanying the gift of an antique cradle, come mysterious visions of an older, darker, Firlebury. Then she meets Gabriel, a soldier like Will, who seems to offer the support and comfort she so desperately needs. In this twilight world of alluring beauty and brutal savagery, is she awake, or is she dreaming?
When her son, Michael, is born, Clare realises the full power of the darkness stealthily surrounding her and her child. As the forces of an ancient evil gather about her with terrifying violence, it seems that the mysterious Gabriel alone can help – but only at the risk of jeopardising everything she holds dear…
“Enigmatic…the author really captures the imagination”
“A feast of mystery, romance and spine-chilling drama…impossible to put down”
