A note from (and about) Anna Dillon
“When did I first suspect that my husband was having an affair? I think I knew long before I was forced to acknowledge the truth.”
“Did I know what I was doing? Only vaguely. No,
that’s not true, of course I knew what I was doing. I just didn’t realise that things would go so far. Not this time anyway.”
“Of course I knew he was married, and I knew he was lyingto me. But I loved him … or I thought I loved him.”
There is a season for all things,
A time to love and a time to die…
Dublin in 1900 is seething with discontent; poverty, disease and prostitution are rife, fuelling the flames of nationalist rebellion. Amidst this turmoil, a young fresh-faced English girl arrives to take up her new position as maid in the family of the cruel but magnetically handsome Englishman, Captain Lewis…
Katherine is instantly attracted to the charismatic officer, but she soon realises he is not quite what he pretends to be. She is wracked with further agonising doubts when she meets Dermot Corcoran, a patriotic young journalist, and discovers he is also hot on the captain’s trail.
And as the nationalist rebellion gathers pace, Katherine finds herself desperately trying to escape from an ever-tightening noose of conspiracy and deception. But, in Captain Lewis, she may have met her match – not only in love but in the deadly game of life itself…
There is a season for all things, a time to lose and a time to seek…
There are two things Katherine Lundy will never speak of-Ireland and her past…
But Ireland draws her son Patrick like a magnet. Fiercely nationlist, he leaves his family to follow his destiny and ignite the burning hatred he feels for England-and his mother… Senga, his sister, is to be launched as a debutante, a glittering social butterfly in fashionable London.
But her discovery of her mother’s hidden past propels her into a completely different world-a murky world of deception and international intrigue…
From London to Dublin and Paris, Patrick and Senga are swept into the future by the changing winds of fortune. But they can never escape the past…
There is a season for all things
A time for war and a time for peace…
Senga Lundy, on the brink of womanhood, has no reason to love her domineering mother. Yet Katherine’s disappearance from glittering 1930’s London plunges Senga reluctantly into her affairs – and into dangerous conflict with the law and ruthless villains alike-as the secrets of Katherine’s past emerge to threaten Senga’s life.
Frightened and confused, Senga flees to Montmartre and then to the uneasy dazzle of pre-war Berlin, her pursuers ever closer on her heels as she draws nearer to the very heart of the mystery. But which of her protectors – Scotswoman Billy, enigmatic policeman Cohn Holdstock, adoring Rutgar von Mann, comfortable Aunt Tilly, or even her beloved brother Patrick and Katherine herself- can she truly trust?
In a violent denouement in the heart of Paris, Senga discovers the unexpected truth.

From New York to Ireland, from London to the Greek Islands, Briony finds herself running from harassment, death and revenge-and straight into a drama more bizarre, more sexually charged and potentially lethal than anything she would have dared put on paper…
