Secrets can bind a family - or tear them apart...

Judith Lennox's A Step in the Dark is a powerful family drama set in India and Scotland that spans from 1915 to the 1960s. Perfect for fans of Lucinda Riley and Kate Morton.

'The unforgettable story of the secrets that can bind a family or ultimately destroy one' - Reading Evening Post

It's 1915 when young Bess Ravenhart, recently widowed, leaves her baby son Frazer with her mother-in-law, Cora, while she sails from India to Britain to set up a home. But Cora has no intention of returning Frazer to his mother's care. Though Bess makes a new life in Edinburgh and knows the joy - and pain - of motherhood with further children, her heart always aches for the little boy she left behind. When Frazer travels to Scotland twenty years later, it seems Bess's dreams of a reconciliation will come true. But Frazer trails danger in his wake, and it's possible that not only he but also Bess and her whole family will live to rue the day of his return...

What readers are saying about A Step in the Dark:

'Convincing and page turning, moving from romance to a detective tale and, satisfyingly, the ends are all tied together, almost too late as the book draws to a close'

'She is a fantastic storyteller, and this book's rich historical tapestry places it above most romantic fiction. You really care about the characters and as such are gripped to the last page'

'One of the best books I have ever read'
