From the Sunday Timesbestselling author of A Week in Paris, a story of love long kept hidden, set against the back streets of Westminster. In a tiny stained-glass shop hidden in the backstreets of Westminster lies the cracked, sparkling image of an angel. The owners of Minster Glass have also been broken: Fran Morrison's mother died when she was a baby; a painful event never mentioned by her difficult, secretive father Edward. Fran left home to pursue a career in foreign cities, as a classical musician. But now Edward is dangerously ill and it's time to return. Taking her father's place in the shop, she and his craftsman Zac accept a beguiling commission - to restore a shattered glass picture of an exquisite angel belonging to a local church. As they reassemble the dazzling shards of coloured glass, they uncover an extraordinary love story from the Victorian past, sparked by the window's creation. Slowly, Fran begins to see her own reflection in its themes of passion, tragedy and redemption. Fran's journey will lead her on a search for the truth about her mother, through mysteries of past times and the anguish of unrequited love, to reconciliation and renewal. Praise for A Week in Paris: 'A tour de force. Rachel's Paris is rich, romantic, exotic and mysterious' Judy Finnigan 'An elegiac tale of wartime love and secrets' Telegraph 'A richly emotional story, suspenseful and romantic, but unflinching in its portrayal of the dreadful reality and legacy of war' Book of the Week, Sunday Mirror

This journal breaks her silence"--Back cover.
Margherita Moretti shares nothing with her father except a knack for painting. When he dies unexpectedly, she dresses as a man to finish the project he started in the cathedral in town. While she's there, she becomes reacquainted with Luca Migliore, a man she knew as a child, a boy who claimed he could travel through time and who promised to return for her as soon as he got rich. Now he's rich, but perhaps he's forgotten his promises. Does he feel the same flames she does when they are together? What secrets are hidden behind his mysterious eyes? When she's forced to flee the town of her birth or face execution, Margherita ends up in Rome, where she learns how to support herself in the only way a destitute Renaissance woman is able: through prostitution. She meets the dashing Ricardo di Medici, whose affection for art seems to rival her own, and they embark on a torrid affair. Is it love or is it merely business? And what is she to make of Luca's sudden reappearance in her life and his warnings that Ricardo is not the man he claims to be? When Margherita stumbles on a frightening truth, which man will have her back, and which man will throw her to the metaphorical wolves? The truth has never been less clear to her, and the stakes have never been so high.
