Years before, Charlotte Cornwall's little stepbrother was kidnapped and found murdered. According to circumstantial evidence, Charlotte was implicated. And even though she was acquitted, Charlotte Cornwall was notorious.

Now Charlotte had a new name and a new life. She taught at Homelands - a nice school for nice young women. However, suddenly, some of the things that begin to happen around Charlotte aren't nice at all. The old suspicions are returning. And this time Charlotte is not sure that she can escape the consequences. I give this an A+! ( )

She fled deep into the countryside and there taught at a school run by the untrusting and untrustworthy Mrs Armitage, who was prepared to keep quiet about Charlotte's past - but only up to a point. When the events come to be recreated, some questions naturally arise. Had Charlotte been responsible for the death of the little pupil she loved? And has that crime been repeated?In darker moments, even Charlotte herself cannot be sure.… (more)
