Secrets of the Tides giveaway

Secrets of the TidesEvery family has its secrets. Some are small, like telling a white lie or snooping through a private drawer. Others are more serious, like infidelity and betrayal. And some secrets are so terrible they must be hidden away in a deep, dark place, for if they ever came to light, they would surely tear a family apart.

The Tides are a family full of secrets. Returning to Clifftops, the rambling family house high on the Dorset coastline, youngest daughter Dora hopes for a fresh start, for herself and the new life she carries. But can long-held secrets ever really be forgiven? And even if you can forgive, can you ever learn to love again?

The spellbinding debut from Hannah Richell is a rich and compelling family drama, with a dark thread of suspense at its heart.

"A rich and intricate exploration of a family torn apart by tragedy. Du Maurier, Pilcher, Shreve – it is easy to make comparisons yet it would be wrong to liken Richell to any other author, her voice is so strong. A masterpiece" Veronica Henry.
