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...

Polonia, 1942. Alla periferia del villaggio di Sokal, in una modesta casetta di legno con un po’ di terreno intorno, vivono Franciszka e la figlia Helena. Al culmine della persecuzione nazista, tutti gli ebrei di Sokal vengono radunati nel ghetto per poi essere deportati. A rischio della sua stessa vita e di quella della figlia, Franciszka accetta di nascondere due famiglie ebree e un giovane disertore tedesco; dietro la sua decisione non c’è un’ideologia né la spinta della religione, ma solo un profondo senso di giustizia e rispetto per la vita umana. Nella sua piccolissima casa Franciszka tiene accesa e protegge la fiamma della speranza nel futuro per quelle persone che a lei si affidano come a una madre. E in fondo, per tutti loro Franciszka sarà proprio questo: una madre amorevole e forte, capace di compiere il più grande dei sacrifici con la naturalezza dei gesti quotidiani più semplici. Perché quando un giorno la guerra sarà finita non conterà ciò che si sarebbe potuto fare, ma solo ciò che si è avuto il coraggio di fare.

One golden family. One fateful summer. Four lives changed forever. Amber Alton knows that the hours pass differently at Black Rabbit Hall, her London family's country estate where no two clocks read the same. Summers there are perfect, timeless. Not much ever happens. Until, one stormy evening in 1968, it does. The idyllic world of the four Alton children is shattered. Fiercely bonded by the tragic events, they grow up fast. But when a glamorous stranger arrives, these loyalties are tested. Forbidden passions simmer. And another catastrophe looms... Decades later, Lorna and her fiancé wind their way through the countryside searching for a wedding venue. Lorna is drawn to a beautiful crumbling old house she hazily remembers from her childhood, feels a bond she does not understand. When she finds a disturbing message carved into an old oak tree by one of the Alton children, she begins to realise that Black Rabbit Hall's secret history is as dark and tangled as its woods, and that, much like her own past, it must be brought into the light. A thrilling spiral into the hearts of two women separated by decades but inescapably linked by Black Rabbit Hall. A story of forgotten childhood and broken dreams, secrets and heartache, and the strength of a family's love.

Ninety years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet.

Shortly after filming begins at the now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahita’s great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his family’s past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . . A multilayered, heartbreaking tale filled with unforgettable characters caught in the sweep of history, The Midnight Rose is Lucinda Riley at her most captivating and unforgettable.
