One of the few books that genuinely shocked me at the end. I will have to read more of hers!

Interesting female characters from the present and the past (WWII) merge to tell a tale and solve a mystery.

Oldest daughter Laurel was witness to her mother’s killing of man on her brother’s second birthday, a death judged self-defense. Now, as her mother’s life is coming to an end long-held secrets begin to unfold.

Morton’s page-turning novel set in WW II London and recent time has a remarkable cast of characters and quite a story. Loved it.
