Quando Dario si accorse delle ferite da taglio sulla delicata pelle di Elena, tenute nascoste fino ad allora, il mondo gli crollò addosso: perché lo faceva? Il medico del pronto soccorso aveva pronunciato una parola terribile, angosciante, mostruosa: autolesionismo. Perché, nonostante due anni insieme, non gli aveva mai parlato del suo problema? E perché continuava a tacere, nonostante confessasse di amarlo alla follia? Cosa o chi voleva coprire? Dario voleva andare a fondo, scavare nel passato della sua amata Elena, sapere tutto sui misteriosi genitori, sull'amica del cuore che lui, stranamente, non aveva mai conosciuto, su chi frequentava quando non erano insieme... In una continua lotta fra sentimenti, amore e mistero, Dario era certo che, dopo il ricovero in un istituto psichiatrico, avrebbe scoperto, finalmente, l'inconfessabile segreto che Elena celava nell'abisso della propria coscienza...

From beloved New York Times bestselling author Lucinda Riley, a “sweeping, poignant saga that will enthrall fans of The House at Riverton, Rebecca, and Downton Abbey” (Shelf Awareness). Spanning from the 1930s to the present day, from the Wharton Park estate in England to Thailand, this sweeping novel tells the tale of a concert pianist and the aristocratic Crawford family, whose shocking secrets are revealed, leading to devastating consequences.

There she reunites with Kit Crawford, heir to the estate and her possible salvation. When they discover an old diary, Julia seeks out her grandmother to learn the truth behind a love affair that almost destroyed the estate.
