With the promise of a new start, will she find the happiness she's longed for? Rosie Goodwin writes a spell-binding saga in Yesterday's Shadows, a tale of bitter loss, lost love and long buried secrets. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Kitty Neale. Kate Cleary feels no sorrow when her brutal father dies. At last she will be free from him, even though she and Nuala, the sister who depends on her for everything, must now leave his miners cottage. Then Kate discovers they have an aunt in the Midlands whom their father had kept secret, and who now offers them a home. Despite leaving her heart in Durham with Matthew, a young artist, Kate feels loved and safe with Aunt Beth. But her peace is shattered by an astonishing revelation from Nuala, and a series of brutal attacks on the women of Nuneaton. Kate turns to a handsome widower, Martin Denby, but is his kindness too good to be true? What readers are saying about Yesterday's Shadows: 'Where to start? Rosie is what you would call a master storyteller. She draws you into her plot until you forget you are reading. You are there, in 1950's Britain and all the hardships that went with it... There is love lost and found, evil and happiness, murder, family in-fighting and intrigue by the bucketful. I for one thoroughly enjoyed my first Goodwin book. It won't be my last. Six Stars out of Five!' 'Rosie has done it again! Rosie's latest novel is just as original, fresh and fabulous as the previous ten before it... As Rosie's fans have come to expect, the characters are real and well rounded. You really feel for them and care about what happens to them... Don't be fooled though. Rosie has made sure that no matter what you think during this novel, you end up never trusting your instincts as her twists are unexpected and plentiful'
