Synopsis

A Step in the Dark by Judith Lennox

It`s 1915 when young Bess Ravenhart, recently widowed, leaves her baby son Frazer with her mother-in-law, Cora, while she sails from India to Britain to set up a home. But Cora has no intention of returning Frazer to his mother`s care. Though Bess makes a new life in Edinburgh and knows the joy – and pain – of motherhood with further children, her heart always aches for the little boy she left behind. When Frazer travels to Scotland twenty years later, it seems Bess`s dreams of a reconciliation will come true. But Frazer trails danger in his wake, and it`s possible that not only he but also Bess and her whole family will live to rue the day of his return…
