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.--From publisher description

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.

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 ...
