The Returning Tide
In the midst of the war, as Cornwall prepares for potential invasion, two sisters, Amelia and Adele, find the influx of American GIs a welcome distraction from the grim realities of life. But on a heady night of celebration, a betrayal is committed that will divide the sisters for ever, and echo across generations . . . When her marriage falls apart and her career stalls, Lara decides to head back to Windward, the rambling house on the Cornish cliffs she’s only ever seen in old family photographs. On arrival, she’s thrown into the midst of a wedding; but it’s a union which appears cursed to fail, according to the best man . . . Can a house really be haunted by its past?

Against the Light
London, April 1912. The third Irish Home Rule Bill is passing through Parliament and the situation is growing ever more tense. Closely involved in the negotiations, cabinet minister Edmund Latimer finds himself under growing pressure which only intensifies when his seven-month-old niece Lucy is snatched away in her pram in Regent’s Park. Could there be a connection between Lucy’s kidnapping and the Irish talks? With her husband under intolerable strain, Edmund’s wife Alice makes it her business to find out. But the more she discovers, the more she realises how little she really knows the man she married five years before.

Working with intelligence officers at RAF Medmenham in England, Rose spies on the enemy from the sky.
