When Emily Gordon, editor at a London publishing house, commissions an account of great English novelist Hugh Morton, she finds herself steering a tricky path between Morton's formidable widow, Jacqueline, who's determined to protect his secrets, and the biographer, charming and ambitious Joel Richards. But someone is sending Emily mysterious missives about Hugh Morton's past and she discovers a buried story that simply has to be told... One winter's day in 1948, nineteen year old Isabel Barber arrives at her Aunt Penelope's house in Earl's Court having run away from home to follow her star. A chance meeting with an East European refugee poet leads to a job with his publisher, McKinnon & Holt, and a fascinating career beckons. But when she develops a close editorial relationship with charismatic young debut novelist Hugh Morton and the professional becomes passionately personal, not only are all her plans put to flight, but she finds herself in a struggle for her very survival. Rachel Hore's intriguing and suspenseful new novel magnificently evokes the milieux of London publishing past and present and connects the very different worlds of two young women, Emily and Isabel, who through their individual quests for truth, love and happiness become inextricably linked.

Review:

'Hore, like Kate Mosse, who also often follows the lives of a contemporary and a historical protagonist, prefers to write long, well-researched historical novels in highly accessible prose rather than lit fic, and, with both being bestsellers, who can blame them? ' -- Independent on Sunday

'The premise is good and main characters well-drawn and engaging'-- The Sunday Times

'Alternating between the 1950s and today, publishing assistant Isabel marries a celebrated novelist. But the marriage fails and her name disappears from records. Helping with the novelist's biography, Emily, who works at the same publisher 50 years later, decides to find out what happened to Isabel. The writer's second wife, now a widow, seems to be obstructing the truth. As the story goes back and forth between the eras, fragments of info are slowly revealed. An intelligent thriller'-- This Week's Hot Read Woman

'Ms Hore specialises in intelligent, well-written, romantic fiction, without a hint of chick lit. She's telling the stories of two women in different eras, connected by a novelist.... Delicious bookish romance' --Kate Saunders, Saga magazine
