Lovely Kate Borrow could hear a girl's haunting voice singing in the darkness that first eerie night she arrived in Kinning, the English village where she was to teach during World War II. Later Kate would believe she knew both the girl and the chilling secrets of this close-knit community. Perhaps her youth - or her romantic dreams about James Conrad, the brooding owner of Kinning Hall - misled her, but the strange disappearance of a student, the beautiful Celia Mond, would lead Kate to walk in a shadowy wood of dark passions and betrayals to discover who in Kinning was capable of murder

The long shadow : a novel of suspense in Victorian England by Anna Gilbert( Book )

10 editions published between 1934 and 2000 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert exhibited a sure hand in her early novels, such as The Leavetaking, at blending the nuances of an era and the romantic culpabilities of her characters with a whisper of suspense. She does so again in this tale of a young woman named Hannah who grows up adoring her beloved sister-in-law, Zilla, only to learn that an awful secret haunts her past. The assumptions of Zilla's guilt by her spouse and sister-in-law are deepened and manipulated by a placid-faced, scheming foundling whose relationship to Zilla is of a more insidious nature than anyone suspects. Throughout, Hannah remains the innocent, uncovering almost inadvertently the treachery and secrets that lie hidden within the most ordinary of God-fearing, Victorian households. Well-plotted, uniquely peopled romantic fare

Why, then, as she grew up, did she occasionally yearn to be free of Barmote Hall?
