Teresa, a young Basque girl, is evacuated to London
in the wake of the Guernica bombing. She thinks she has
reached safety in the lofty halls of Rochester Place and the
soothing arms of Mary Davidson, but trouble seeks her
out wherever she goes . . .
Corrine, an emergency services operator, receives a call from a
distressed woman called Mary. But when the ambulance arrives
at Rochester Place – the address the woman gave them – she
is nowhere to be found. No matter how hard she tries to forget,
memories of Mary’s raw fear haunt Corinne and secrets,
long-hidden in Corinne’s family tree, begin to surface.
Is Mary calling from beyond the grave? And what actually
happened at Rochester Place all those years ago?
