A novel by

 
 
'The Secret Wife is impossible to put down. I stayed up all night and read it all in one sitting.' ... 'Fabulous storytelling. I found myself holding my breath at times!'

From the author of The Penmaker's Wife, and the million-copy bestselling JEFFERSON TAYTE series. 

Locked away. Believed to be dead. Can a mother survive her murderous husband's cruel oppression?

A house fire at Crows-an-Wra Manor in a remote part of West Cornwall supposedly takes the life of its mistress, Rosen Trevelyan. Sometime later, she awakes to find herself locked in an unfamiliar room, questioning why her husband, Richard, has done this to her. And what of their daughter? Did Sophia really die in the fire, as Rosen has been led to believe? 

When a stranger arrives at the manor, and the reason for Rosen's incarceration becomes clear, she fears that her husband can ill afford to keep her alive much longer. But could this harbinger of her death also be her salvation? 

Under the watchful eyes of Richard's hateful mother, Mariah, Rosen must do all she can to survive their cruelty, in the hope that she will some day be reunited with her daughter, but time is running out. 

Can this stranger to Crows-an-Wra Manor discover the truth before it's too late for both of them? 

Room meets Rebecca in a suspenseful tale of deception, murder, and survival in nineteenth-century Cornwall.
