Mandy Miller disappeared from Hallow’s End when she was just three years old.
She was never found.
Thirty years on, Elaine Ellis is carrying her mother’s ashes back to Hallow’s End to
scatter them in the place that she once called home. Elaine has never been there, but
it’s the only place Jean talked about while she was growing up – so it seems as good a
place as any.
As Elaine settles into her holiday cottage in the peaceful Devonshire village, she gets
to know the locals; family she never knew she had; eccentric and old-fashioned
gentry, and new friends where she would least expect them. But she is intrigued by
the tale of the missing girl that the village still carries at its heart, and which somehow
continues to overshadow them all. Little does she know how much more involved in
the mystery she will become…
