The hours pass differently at Black Rabbit Hall.

For the four Alton children, it's the perfect summer escape where not much ever happens - until one stormy evening their idyllic world is shattered.

Decades later, Lorna is drawn to a crumbling Cornish manor house she hazily remembers from childhood - feels a bond she does not understand.

But a disturbing message left by one of the Alton children tells her that Black Rabbit Hall's history is as dark and tangled as its woods.

And much like her own past, it must be brought into the light . . .

A spellbinding story of two women, separated by decades, but inextricably linked by their connection to the beautiful and mysterious Black Rabbit Hall.
