The American Countess of Harleigh, Frances Wynn is known for enjoying a lot of freedom being a widow as compared to when she was a wife. After spending a year mourning Reggie, her husband, she put all her black gowns aside. She left the countryside and all of her money-hungry in-laws behind. Frances rented a home with her young daughter in tow in Belgravia. She prepared to welcome Lily, her sister who was coming from New York. She was coming to London for the very first time.
As soon as Frances barely settled in her new life, the ghosts from her part live started to make a highly unwelcoming appearance. An anonymous letter was received by the Metropolitan police which implicated Frances in the death of her husband. This changed the scenario altogether.
This historical fiction has got a mystery which has to be solved. It will make a great read especially when the narrator, Sarah Zimmerman did it brilliantly.
