A Heritage of Shadows

(1984)
A novel by

 
It is 1890 and Hannah McLeod, an 18 year - old English girl, is living in Paris where she works at a small restaurant. Only her neighbour, Toby Kent, a struggling artist, knows the strange and horrifying secret that means she cannot return to England. One night, while rescuing a stranger from attack, Hannah becomes entangled in circumstances that force her to flee from France to England to take up the mysterious offer she had received from Sebastian Ryder. But why should Mr Ryder want to employ her? Does he know something of which she is unaware? What are the secrets of her past? Hannah is ignorant of her true identity and convinced that she will be forever denied love because of her shameful past, and now finds herself plunged into a world of nightmarish intrigue. As her adventure unfolds, carrying her from England to Mexico and back again to Paris, Hannah finds herself caught up in a struggle between two men of great wealth and power - a struggle which threatens her life. Vividly recreating the atmosphere of the 1890s, exposing the dark and sinister elements that lurked below that outwardly respectable era, Madeleine Brent crafts another story of drama and suspense.
