When a young widow’s little girl vanishes, could a dark family secret hold the answer?
On the death of her aunt Gwyn, Lowri returns once more to Gwyn’s home on the remote island of Anglesey, Wales, with young daughter Ruby in tow. Lowri hadn’t seen her aunt in years, but this beautiful island offers a fresh start.
Yet right away, strange things begin to happen. Ruby insists an old woman is visiting her when no one else is watching, and a tattered old doll keeps being left for Ruby to find.
Then Ruby goes missing. Desperately seeking answers no one seems to have, Lowri looks to her dark family past for clues. But the secrets she uncovers suggest that Ruby is not the only one in danger, and time is running out – for both of them…
A terrifically dark and twisty tale that asks: can you ever really trust those closest to you? Perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, Cass Green and C.J. Tudor.Readers are gripped by Anne Wyn Clark:

This book is so well thought out, so fantastically structured with never ending anxiety leading me away from my every day life of The Last House on the Cliff.
Anne Wyn Clark well-plots her books with the perfect intrigue and surprise elements that are sure to leave you anxious and tense.
The plot is well constructed and connects cleverly. There are moments of tension and suspense with some unexpected twists and shocking discoveries.
The characterisation is an especially good feature of the book.
The characters were so realistic.
The story is so easy to keep up with and flows so well! I absolutely loved how the story came together, I loved the chills it gave me, especially reading it in the dark!

Lowri returns to a remote Welsh island after the death of her aunt Gwyn, bringing her daughter Ruby. Lowri and her daughter are still grieving after the death of Lowri’s husband, and she hopes the island will work its old magic on herself and her daughter. At first, it seems to be working, but then Ruby starts talking about an old woman who visits her when no one else is around. Lowri believes this might be the result of Ruby’s grief, but when the girl disappears, she’s forced to reexamine everything she thought she knew about her family and their past. A great Gothic read that put me in mind of Mary Stewart
I received an advanced reader’s copy in exchange for an honest review
I loved this book! Super suspenseful- had me turning pages late through the night because I could not put it down until I had worked out all the twists. I can't wait to read more books from this author. Five stars
