In the Shadow of Winter

By Lorna Gray

‘Absorbing and chilling, yet tempered with echoes of a lost romance…this story is one of the best I’ve read this year for its imagery and originality’ Jane Hunt Reviews

Set in the bleak winter of 1947, you will love this compelling drama if you love historical dramas.

The Cotswolds, 1947

A relentless winter holds post-war Britain in its deadly grip, and Eleanor Phillips rides out from her beleaguered Cotswold farm to rescue a stranger lost in the storm. But the near-dead man is no stranger and when she recognises Matthew Croft, the old ties of a failed romance tug deeply. Her sweetheart has returned from the war.

Suspicion, the police and the panicked flight of a desperate man beat a path to her door. With a wanted man hidden in her home and stealing back into her heart, Eleanor must be on her guard – for the net is closing in on them both and enemies are all around…
