The Girl on the Cliff by Lucinda Riley

Could a secret from 1914 end a century of heartache? A tiny figure stands at the cliff edge - hair flying in the breeze. Grania Ryan is hypnotised by the enchanting vision, unaware this young girl, Aurora Lisle, will change her life in countless ways. For Grania is suffering and has returned to Ireland and the arms of her loving family, in the hope her wounds might heal. As their paths begin to entwine, Grania's mother becomes deeply troubled ...because almost a century of entanglement has brought nothing but terrible tragedy to their two families. The past is set to repeat its sorrows.
