Abstract:

Natasha Blake is an ancestor detective, an ambitious young genealogist with a passion for history, whose choice of career is partly driven by the mystery of her own roots. Natasha's investigations are a matter of life and death, involving secrets, scandals and supernatural happenings; forgotten tragedies and buried crimes. The trails she must follow lead her from her Cotswold home to ancient houses, deserted chapels, overgrown graveyards and into cyberspace. Her clients could be anyone for whom the past affects the present--the haunted, the hopeful, or the just plain curious. The disappearance of a young girl, Bethany, appears to be linked in some way to Lizzie Siddal, the haunting, ethereal Pre-Raphaelite model, wife of painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Exhumed by her husband to retrieve the poems he once grief and guilt-strickenly buried in her coffin, Lizzie appeared as beautiful as ever. She died two years after marrying Rossetti--by an overdose of laudanum. Was it accident or suicide? Why is Bethany so obsessed with her, and at the same time so determined to put herself beyond the reach of her lover, Adam?
