But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endure. One midsummer's eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest child, eleven-month-old Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined. Decades later, Alice is living in London, having enjoyed a long successful career as an author.

Grace Bradley went to work at Riverton House as a servant when she was just a girl, before the First World War. For years her life was inextricably tied up with the Hartford family, most particularly the two daughters, Hannah and Emmeline. In the summer of 1924, at a glittering society party held at the house, a young poet shot himself. The only witnesses were Hannah and Emmeline and only they--and Grace--know the truth. In 1999, when Grace is ninety-eight years old and living out her last days in a nursing home, she is visited by a young director who is making a film about the events of that summer. She takes Grace back to Riverton House and reawakens her memories.--Résumé de l'éditeur

My real name, no one remembers. The truth about that summer, no one else knows. In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor on the banks of the Upper Thames. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe's life is in ruins. Over one hundred and fifty years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items: a sepia photograph of an arresting-looking woman in Victorian clothing, and an artist's sketchbook containing the drawing of a twin-gabled house on the bend of a river. Why does Birchwood Manor feel so familiar to Elodie? And who is the beautiful woman in the photograph? Will she ever give up her secrets? Told by multiple voices across time, The Clockmaker's Daughter is a story of murder, mystery and thievery, of art, love and loss. And flowing through its pages like a river, is the voice of a woman who stands outside time, whose name has been forgotten by history, but who has watched it all unfold: Birdie Bell, the clockmaker's daughter

Eine unheilvolle Lüge, eine verbotene Sehnsucht, ein geheimes Verbrechen England, Greenacres Farm 1961: Während einer Familienfeier am Flussufer beobachtet die junge Laurel, wie ein Fremder das Grundstück betritt und ihre Mutter aufsucht. Kurz darauf ist der idyllische Frieden des Ortes jäh zerstört. Erst fünfzig Jahre später gesteht sich Laurel beim Anblick eines alten Fotos ein, dass sie damals Zeugin eines Verbrechens wurde. Doch was genau geschah an jenem lang zurückliegenden Sommertag? Weltbestseller-Autorin Kate Morton erschafft eine einzigartige Welt, in der die Vergangenheit die Gegenwart nicht loslässt. Als Laurel nach langer Zeit anlässlich des neunzigsten Geburtstags ihrer Mutter Dorothy in ihr Elternhaus zurückkehrt, holen sie schon bald verdrängte Erinnerungen ein. Der Gedanke an den geheimnisvollen Fremden, der fünfzig Jahre zuvor Unheil über ihre Familie brachte, lässt sie nicht mehr los. Sie ist entschlossen, endlich das Rätsel um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter zu lösen. Ein Foto aus dem Jahr 1941 scheint der Schlüssel zu sein: Es zeigt Dorothy in London, Arm in Arm mit einer Frau namens Vivien. Warum zerbrach die Freundschaft der beiden Frauen? Und wer ist Jimmy, den Dorothy wohl sehr liebte und doch vor der Familie verbarg? Auf der Suche nach Antworten muss Laurel erfahren, dass sie sich immer in ihrer Mutter getäuscht hat ... In ihrem neuen grossen Roman erzählt Kate Morton eine mitreissende Geschichte, die von den 1930ern bis in die Gegenwart reicht und von einer kleinen Farm in Suffolk bis nach Australien führt
