A complex tale of healing, of truth and half-truth, of long-held secrets, set in the 1920s. Mystery

If you're a fan of quality period fiction and have not yet discovered Jacqueline Winspear you must, absolutely must, hurry down to your bookstore or library and pick yourself up a copy of Pardonable Lies (or one her two earlier books) at your earliest opportunity; the plot of each book stands alone and Winspear provides sufficient backstory in each that you can dip into the series at any point.

For those of you who are champing at the bit for the next in the series, your wait is almost over .... Messenger of Truth will be simultaneously released in the UK and USA in hardcover this August.
