It centres on Theo Edevane a young child who went missing in 1933 from the family home, Loeanneth, in Cornwall.
Involved in this well written saga (almost 600 pages!) are Theo’s parents, grandmother and sisters, close family friends, an elicit love affair, world war one & lots of secrets. All the characters had a part to play in what happened, and all knew some of it, but some think they know more than they do.
The story is woven together by Sadie, a detective constable, who is staying at her Grandad’s in Cornwall after messing up at work in London.
The descriptions of Loeanneth are so good that I could imagine being there, I can see it in my mind, a lovely place in it’s heyday.
What an ending, no I’m not going to tell you what it is – read the book, you won’t be disappointed.
