The Snow Angel by Lulu Taylor
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An involved family saga centring on an old house in Cumbria and a complicated relationship in the 1960s which is unearthed in the present. We follow both stories but are only drip-fed sufficient to keep us highly enthralled as each tale unfolds. Naturally the two come together in an intriguing manner and both tragedies are resolved … well almost! A lovely read.

If you like Lulu Taylor you might also like to read books by Erica James, Santa Montefiore and Marcia Willett.

Synopsis

The Snow Angel by Lulu Taylor

A forbidden passion. A lifetime of consequences. Cressida Felbridge is living the high life as a debutante in 1960s London society when she is courted by a friend of her brother's and set to marry. Wishing only the best for his daughter, her father decrees that she must have her portrait painted to mark the occasion. But as soon as she meets the painter Ralph Few, Cressie knows her life will never be the same again. Soon, she is deeply in love with Ralph, but there is one problem: Ralph is still married to Catherine. As Cassie is drawn into a strange, triangular relationship, Catherine's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and Ralph and Cressie escape to Cressie's family home in Cumbria. But Catherine will not give up Ralph that easily ...In the present day, Emily Conway has everything she could wish for: a huge house in West London, two beautiful children and a successful husband, Will. But as Emily and Will drive to a party, Will reveals that he has been betrayed by his business partner. Steering the car off the road at high speed, their perfect life is abruptly ended. When she wakes from her injuries, Emily is told of a mysterious legacy: a house in Cumbria on the edge of an estate, left to her by a woman she has never met. Could this house provide the chance to start anew, or does it hold secrets that she must uncover before it can be at peace? A deliciously dark family saga from Lulu Taylor, the bestselling author of The Winter Folly.
