Two women. Two Timelines. One heart-wrenching story.
Who was the late Edith Pinsent?
Now that Netta Wilde’s life is fixed, she decides to find out more about the woman who once lived in her house.
As Netta goes through Edith’s belongings, she finds herself on a journey of discovery that begins with a wide-eyed young WAAF in wartime Britain and ends with an eccentric old spinster, alone with her memories.
But the path to the truth is not easy.There are missing diaries to contend with, hidden clues to uncover and revelations that turn everything on its head. Revelations that make Netta question just how fixed her own life really is.
Soon, the need to revisit her own past proves too strong and Netta finds she has two challenges on her hands. One to find the true Edith Pinsent. The other to face the two people who once meant more than anything else in the world to her. Neither seem to be going the way she’d expected.
As the two challenges intertwine, Netta realises that Edith had a purpose for her. One that she must fulfil.
Bit by bit, the house yields a lifetime of secrets and the real Edith Pinsent begins to emerge. But will it be the Edith everyone thought they knew?
