Thorne Mooreabout this book: Sarah has it all – a career, money, a good-looking, ambitious fiancé – and she's a complete mess. What she has is not what she wants, and she seeks an escape. She thinks she finds it in the past, when she stumbles across the derelict cottage, Cwmderwen, in West Wales, where her grandparents had once lived and farmed. When she discovers that that the family lost the farm sixty years ago, because her grandfather, John Owen, was murdered, she is stunned. Why was she never told about the murder? Who was the murderer? Why will no-one speak about it? She is determined to get to the truth, and to buy the cottage and restore it, recapturing the happy rural simplicity her grandparents must surely have shared there.
But interwoven with the tale of Sarah's quest is the true story of her grandmother Gwen, from the day she married John Owen in 1933, to the day in 1948, when John was murdered and she left Cwmderwen forever. Her life is anything but idyllic. Sarah, in her ruthless investigations, may learn the truth, but perhaps she will also learn that there is a time, and a reason, to keep silence.
