On a humid, thundery afternoon, Laura Blundy commits an appalling act of murder. Or is it so appalling to free yourself, to run after the only passion you've ever known? Billy - fifteen years younger than her and already a father of five - has to find an answer. But he doesn't yet know that Laura also had a child whose memory will shape their future together in unimaginable ways. Julie Myerson's new novel moves through a Victorian London which is tender, murky, unsettling - a haunting love story.

Genre: Historical

Praise for this book

"Dark, sexy and insolent. I hope to be startled and challenged by novels. Myerson more than obliges." - Jim Crace

"A richly atmospheric novel which burns in the imagination, and will go on burning for a long time. Lorna belongs in her own time, and yet reaches out through it, telling her story with a candour I found deeply moving." - Helen Dunmore
