A powerful, supernatural love story.|
The Manor House of Nonesuch has been home to generations of passionate Herringe women. But when the last of them, the mysterious Stella (known by many as the Witch of Ashmore), is dead, burned in the fire which consumed the house, Nonesuch passes to Stella’s, cousin John Dawe. John loves Nonesuch and sets about restoring it, but his wife Anna feels the legacy of the house is tainted, inextricably linked with the jealous woman who tried so hard to destroy her. Then, Eleanor, the baby that should have brought them together seems to have inherited some unnerving Herringe family characteristics, and is driving them further apart. As Anna battles to shake off a sense of dread and save her crumbling marriage, the restoration work progresses amid layers of history. Soon the grim secret at the heart of Nonesuch will be revealed.
