It is 1905. Asta and her husband, Rasmus, have come to East London from Denmark with their two little boys. With Rasmus constantly away on business, Asta keeps loneliness and isolation at bay by writing a diary. These diaries, published over 70 years later, reveal themselves to be more than a mere journal. For they seem to hold the key to an unsolved murder and to the mystery of a missing child. It falls to Asta's granddaughter, Ann, to unearth the buried secrets of nearly a century before.

    " Asta's book according to my version. Terrific as I come to expect from Ruth Rendell as Barbara Vine. Still terrific on second read. Great mystery, unpredictable pathways and red herrings. Very satisfying overall. "

    " This is the first book I've read by this author. It sat on my bookshelf for a few years before I pulled it off, but once I started reading, I was hooked. It's not a typical mystery. I was drawn into Anna's mundane journal entries and her honesty about her relationships/worldview. The granddaughter's story was less interesting, but it did help tidy up the loose ends. "
