Lily Josephine had a talent for love. Wilful, enchanting and
passionate, she was the centre of a charmed universe, until her
foolish, indulgent father married again.
Like Snow Drop in Grimms' fairy tale, Lily ran from her jealous
stepmother one idyllic summer evening in 1941. She escaped to find
sanctuary but, at Randalls, discovered a love far greater than any
she had ever known... A generation later, the events set in motion
that night begin to unravel when Sophie gently falls in love with
Octavius Randall and the bizarre and tragic history linking their
families is uncovered. Not until ancient passions and betrayals
have been confronted can Lily Josephine, long gone, but never
forgotten - truly be laid to rest.
