Leaving Shades

Gloria Cook

A 1920s historical saga about a woman’s homecoming to her estranged mother—and her reunion with her ex-lover—uses the “Cornish setting to great effect” (Booklist).

After a tragic miscarriage, Beth Tresaile returns to Owles House, the place of her miserable childhood, accompanied by her best friend, Kitty Copeland. Beth is determined to get revenge on her estranged mother, Christina, who neglected and abandoned her. But Beth slowly begins to discover that much of her childhood was built on deception.

Kitty is captivated with Cornwall, and Beth reluctantly becomes involved with the locals. However, there are fresh troubles ahead when her married lover, Kitty’s brother, wants to come back into her life . . .
