When it is arranged for him to become companion to the child at the big house above the valley, Billy leaves home to find a wild, peculiar boy in a curiously haphazard household where nothing that's meant is said and the air is thick with secrets. Before long, tragedy strikes and facts become entangled with fictions. It's left to Anna Sallis, almost a century later, to unravel the knots and find the truth.
I loved the setting in Yorkshire, it was very atmospheric (particularly in winter) and I would have loved to have visited the Palace in it's heyeday, However somehow I could not warm to some of characters much. Jasper was such a nasty person and I took against him straight away. Edie and Charles Harper were pretty one dimensional to me too. The only more real people I think were Anna and Frank. They kept me interested in the story and the family history.
