Synopsis

The Pull of The Moon by Diane Janes

Knowledge is power, but secrets are more powerful still...secrets have a life of their own and a way of working themselves to centre stage. When Kate Mayfield receives a letter from Mrs Ivanisovic, she realises that the secret she has kept for more than thirty years is not so safe as she imagined. Haunted by the echoes of a vanished summer which changed her life for ever, Kate is forced to confront memories she would rather forget...a dead white face in a flickering beam, not flinching when the soil hit it...Mrs Ivanisovic is dying and demands to be told the truth, but is Kate's story of love, lies and murder really what Mrs Ivanisovic wants to hear? And how much does she herself already know? The danger is always there that a secret is going to find a way out.

Reviews

Well written and constructed. * The Bookbag * A captivating read that injects new life into the familiar tales of murder, lies and love ... A truly gripping read. * Westmorland Gazette *
