In the Shadow of Winter

The Cotswolds, 1947

A relentless winter holds post-war Britain in its deadly grip, and Eleanor Phillips rides out from her beleaguered Cotswold farm to rescue a stranger lost in the storm. But the near-dead man is no stranger and when she recognises Matthew Croft, the old ties of a failed romance tug deeply. Her sweetheart has returned from the war.

Suspicion, the police and the panicked flight of a desperate man beat a path to her door. With a wanted man hidden in her home and stealing back into her heart, Eleanor must be on her guard – for the net is closing in on them both and enemies are all around…

In the Shadow of Winter is the debut novel by Lorna Gray and is published by Harper Impulse on ebook. The paperback edition will be available in all bookshops from 21 May 2015.
