violent deaths. Separated by time, but with a fatal connection…




A
man loses his father. A young woman loses her mother. Both in tragic
circumstances that lead, when they meet, to surprising revelations
from the past.




Louisa
needs to find the father she has never known, to warn him of possible
danger - for them both. Her search takes her from England to
Guernsey. Malcolm's journey is more tortuous: conceived in Guernsey,
he travels to Canada as a baby with his bereaved mother. Many years
later he arrives in India, and from here he is led back to Guernsey
to open a health centre at La Folie. This was his father's home,
where Malcolm was conceived, but never lived and where his father was
killed at the start of the Second World War.

At
the heart of the two deaths lie stolen jewels. Valuable enough to
kill for. Twice.

Finding
her father brings Louisa more than she bargains for, and her life is
transformed, while Malcolm learns that life is, after all, for
sharing…
