Emma Rose Millar

about this book: It is 1922 and Rose Levey, a shy shop girl from a small town in the Midlands falls hopelessly in love with Charlie, a womanizer, an opportunist, unable to let go of his past and with an addiction to opium which will take both of them on a devastating path to self-destruction. In the face of his abject cruelty, Rose will find love in a place where she least expects it – the arms of another woman. This is a story of domestic violence, drug addiction but also of courage and a love between women in a world full of bigotry and prejudice.

An eerie sound effect, (the aeolian harp) runs right the way through the story. As Charlie loses his grip on reality he cannot block out this sound. The cover from the novel comes from a painting called 'Hope' by George Frederic Watts, but really its theme is more one of 'hoping against hope', a feeling which anyone who has been in an abusive relationship will recognise.

• "Full of engaging characters, complex relationships, seedy locations and spine-chilling twists and turns, this is a brilliantly written novel which is sure to keep you hooked." —
