Two titles this fortnight.
Recently published, March 2016.
Rosetta revelled in a life few women of her time would have dared to embrace, yet all the while she hid her secret shame: the daughter she had left behind. This is the compelling story of Alexandra Joel’s quest to uncover the truth about her scandalous great-grandmother, and the shocking century-old secret she would discover at the heart of her family.

The first novella in a series of six being released (on the first of each month until September 2016) by Inkerman & Blunt.
This smart, precise, and beautiful novella reads like an emotional time bomb. Everything is quiet at first, then comes a slow build of tension, and then comes a strange ticking sound, and then—BOOM—suddenly your heart blows up. You can’t write better than this. It’s simply perfect.—Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love
The collection has been compared to David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas, and is one of the May Book Releases That Caught My Eye.
