The War Widow, Paperback / softback Book


The echoes of war live long in the mind... Wales, 1947 Injured and terrified after an attempted abduction, desperation drives artist Kate Ward to the idyllic scene of her ex-husband's recent suicide.

Labelled a hysterical, grieving divorcee, no one believes she is being pursued by two violent men demanding answers she cannot give.

Not the police, not the doctors, and not the guests at the Aberystwyth hotel she has come to in an attempt to find out what happened to her charismatic photographer ex-husband, and why her identity - and her life - are now at risk. Kate can trust no one, not even the reclusive war-veteran-turned-crime-novelist, Adam Hitchen, a reserved widower and the only source of kindness in a shadowy world of suspicion and fear. And as ghosts old and new rise to haunt her, Kate must rely on all her strength and courage to uncover the shocking truth hidden within a twisted web of lies...
