Description

‘Immersive, engrossing and ultimately beautiful’ Marian Keyes

The heart-stopping and magical story of a childhood, a house, and the deepest of loves…

‘A beautifully written family saga which already feels like a classic’ Red magazine

Then: Fane Hall
Sarah has spent a lifetime trying to bury memories of her childhood: the constant fear, the horror of her school days, and Fane, the vast, crumbling house that was the sole obsession of her mother, Iris, a woman as beautiful as she was cruel.

1969: Hampstead
Rescuing herself from the shadow of Fane, talented Sarah forges a career as a cellist and marries the love of her life, Daniel. But when they move into a near-derelict house in Hampstead and try to get on with becoming a family, Sarah finds the past will not let her go. Can she break free of the hold of Fane and her mother, and keep the promise she made as a child one magical starry night:?
