Accept it, he is dead.
No, it’s not true.
It is. Everyone thinks so except you.
Forced to leave their family home in London after it is bombed, Maddie and her two young daughters take refuge at Knyghton, the beautiful country house in Norfolk where Maddie’s husband Philip spent the summers of his childhood.
But Philip is gone, believed to have been killed in action in northern France. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Maddie refuses to give up hope that she and Philip will some day be reunited.
Arriving at Knyghton, Maddie feels closer to her missing husband, but she soon realises that there’s a reason Philip has never spoken to her about his past. Something happened at Knyghton one summer years before. Something that involved Philip, his cousin Lyle and a mysterious young woman named Flora.
Maddie’s curiosity turns to desperation as she tries to discover the truth, but no one will speak about what happened all those years ago, and no one will reassure her that Philip will ever return to Knyghton.
The extraordinarily powerful new novel from bestselling author Rachel Hore.

Huge thanks to Netgalley for an early read of this book, I absolutely loved it! I got into the story within the first few pages and didn’t mind my usual 4am wake up so could read some more before going back to sleep! The characters were described really well, I felt I could visualise them all clearly along with the house and village. And the description of the war consequences across France were really well written, all in all a fab book and I would highly recommend it x
Thanks Netgalley and the Publisher. I really enjoy this authors style of writing and absolutely thought this was her best yet. Great characters, great location and a wonderful storyline. Would recommend.
Love love love!!! I could not put this down! I'm currently off work and I just keep reading and oh my god this book! Rachel Hore never fails to meet expectation. Such a good book.
I really loved this book. Exactly my sort of historical fiction and largely set in Norfolk. I was intrigued throughout and really didn't want to put it down
Set in the early years of World War 2, the story follows Maddie as she flees London after her house is bombed. With her two little ones in tow she seeks refuge at her husband Philip’s childhood home in Norfolk where she hopes to feel closer to him. Philip is listed as missing in France but Maddie is sure he is still alive, and when she discovers a years-old mystery involving her husband, she soon realises why he never spoke about his past. And as the bombs rain down on battered Britain, can Maddie and her family survive the horrors of war?
A compelling family drama which was an enjoyable read.
