The Secret Hours

by Santa Montefiore

Historical Fiction

The Secret Hours Synopsis

The enchanting new novel from Sunday Times bestselling author, Santa Montefiore. The perfect summer read for 2020!

My curiosity is aroused. I realise, to my shame, that I know nothing about my mother, nothing at all... nothing of her growing up, of the struggles and hardships she endures. I know nothing of her parents, her siblings, and of her home. My mother is gone. And there is no one left to tell her story.

Determined to fulfil her mother's last wish, Faye travels to the picturesque village of Ballinakelly to scatter her ashes on the hills overlooking the sea in a remote corner of Ireland. In searching for answers about her mother's past, will Faye's own future become clear?
