Wow. What an emotional roller-coaster of a book!

Jane is a novelist, married to an accountant, who suddenly hears that she has been left a cottage by an aunt that she didn't know existed.

Journeys into the past, brilliantly interwoven with the present as Jane begins to uncover her past. Unputdownable! ( )

Took me a long time to get into this book – had almost got to the 50 pages limit that I give when “Woosh” it hooked me in.
Jane is happily married to Chas – but childless. Just before her fiftieth birthday and aunt she never knew existed, Lillian, leaves her an inheritance – a cottage on a cliff on Isle of Wight. Her father refuses to talk about Lillian, and the lawyer advises her just to sell the cottage, but Jane decides on a whim to head off and find the place.

What she finds, the journey of discovery and the revelations of family skeletons, changes Jane for ever.

The story shifts between narrators, both dead and alive, and also shifts between past and present. There are twists and turns and is well worth the read.
