Erica has been writing very successfully for many years – lovely holiday/family romances. Now suddenly she has come up with something on a different level. A big, gritty saga full of incident; a tale of first love, family tragedy, drama, mistaken guilt and a past that needs to be laid to rest - it is excellent.
*Includes an exclusive extract of Erica's moving and life-affirming new novel, publishing in 2018!* Set in the beautiful city of Venice, a captivating novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Summer at the Lake. Venice has been Lydia's home for many years, a place where she has found peace and fulfilment. Then one day she glimpses a young man's face in the crowd that threatens to change everything. He's a heart-stopping reminder of a dreadful secret she believed she had banished to the past... As a young child, Lydia and her sister were sent to live with grandparents they'd never even met before. It was a cruel and loveless new world for them and it forced Lydia to grow up fast. She learned to keep secrets and to trust sparingly, and through it all she was shadowed by grief and guilt. Now, twenty-eight years later, Lydia is persuaded to leave behind the safe new life she has created for herself and return to England to face the past. And maybe her future. The perfect escapist read for fans of Santa Montefiore and Katie Fforde.
