Another Heartbeat in the House

by Kate Beaufoy

Another Heartbeat in the House Synopsis

Two women living a hundred years apart. One home that binds them together. When Edie Chadwick travels to Ireland to close up her uncle's lakeside lodge, it's as much to escape the burden of guilt she's carrying as to break loose from the smart set of 1930's London. The old house is full of memories - not just her own, but those of a woman whose story has been left to gather dust in a chest in the attic: a handwritten memoir inscribed with an elegant signature . . . Eliza Drury As she turns the pages of the manuscript, Edie uncovers secrets she could never have imagined: an exciting tale of ambition, hardship, love and tragedy - a story that has waited a lifetime to be told. . . 'A delightful story, rich, engrossing and vividly told' Rachel Hore 'A compelling, atmospheric story brimming with period detail about two feisty, independent heroines who will steal your heart' Cathy Kelly 'With a marvellously evocative setting, strong and believable lead characters and a pacey plot, Another Heartbeat in the House is a thoroughly compelling love story' Liz Trenow
