Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A contemporary tale which harks back to the eighteenth century when a mother and daughter unite in helping a young man regain his memory. It turns out that although he has links to the nearby manor house, when we learn of the horrific trauma that unbalanced him, it sent shivers down my spine. I love this author.

Similar this month: None but try Carol Birch.
Comparison: Sarah Harrison, Adele Geras, Imogen Parker.

Synopsis

Out of the Blue by Charlotte Bingham

Florence Fontaine has still not recovered from a family tragedy when she discovers a strangely dressed young man asleep in her guest cottage at the Old Rectory. Against her better judgement she offers him breakfast, only to rue the day as she finds herself caught up in the resulting drama of his life. Florence's young and beautiful daughter, Amadea, is immediately suspicious of Edward, as he appears to be called, fearing that he might be a fraud.

Against everyone's advice, Florence enlists friends and neighbours to help restore Edward's now wandering mind and discover who he might be. As the mystery unfolds, it becomes apparent that Edward's history is entwined with that of nearby Harlington Hall, but that his real identity is something quite other. Florence and Amadea become united in their quest, an adventure that takes them into many pasts, not least that of the young man whom they are now dedicated to help. In doing so they are finally able to put tragedy behind them, repair their once disjointed lives, and embrace a new and happy future.
