After her soldier husband is seriously injured and her marriage begins to fall apart, Meredith Cordingley returns to teach at Letchford, the grand Cotswold private school run by her father, who outwardly appears to be a typically English headmaster. The setting provides Meredith with a tranquil refuge from her own heartache until one September afternoon, when a shocking discovery is made in the history room. The police are called, but all is not what it seems.
Meredith is determined to discover the culprit and becomes convinced that a manipulative member of staff is controlling the sinister goings-on at her beloved Letchford, and exerting a calculating influence on a vulnerable and troubled young student, but on her journey to untangle the truth Meredith risks her father’s reputation, as well as her own. As the mystery unravels Meredith comes to discover that there is more than one person at Letchford School hiding a past filled with complicated secrets.
What follows is a gripping mystery, a tale of war, grief, love and second chances.

'I always enjoy books where the chapters concentrate on the various characters take on things and this is one of them, and it reveals some interesting sides to their natures. Just when you think things are all sorted out, however there s a very unsettling ending.' --Hull Daily Mail
'A fantastic summer read which will please readers of all types of fiction.'
'Curiouser and curiouser, Alice in Wonderland would have remarked if she had wandered through the intriguing plotline in Eliza Graham s haunting new novel. The History Room is a clever and compelling story, one that addresses social issues past and present, the fall-out from broken relationships, the devastation of war and yet grips like a vice with the disturbing mystery at its heart.' --Lancashire Evening Post
'This is a mystery about war, grief and second chances...There is much for a reading group to tackle: revenge, long-held ideas unravelling, the relationship between parents and children, and the relationship shift between people affected by war.' --New Books Magazine
The past is never past
