Publisher Description

Hannah Manning was once an internationally renowned journalist and war correspondent; today she’s a woman suffering from a traumatic brain injury. Unable to read, unable to concentrate, full of pain, lost and confused, and haunted by her memories, Hannah goes to Ontario to her sister’s small-scale vegetable farm to recover.

As summer settles on the farm, she finds comfort in the soft rolling hills and neat fields as well as friendship in the company of Hila Popalzai, an Afghan woman also traumatized by war.

But Hannah experiences strange visions of a woman emerging from the icy-cold mist. Is the woman real or the product of her damaged brain? Which would be worse? Then Hila disappears. And when Hannah cannot account for her time—not even to herselfold enemies begin to circle.

In this modern Gothic novel of heart-wrenching suspense, past and present merge into a terrifying threat to the only thing Hannah still holds dear: her ten-year-old niece, Lily.

    " Vicki Delany is one of my favourite crime writers. She's one of the few people whose stand-alone books I enjoy just as much as her series (Constable Molly Smith). A brilliant example of a modern gothic thriller, More than Sorrow hits all the right notes. "

    " I thought the author did a very good job of integrating a traumatic injury with the core message in this story. Very well done and leaves me wanting to try out some of her other work. "

    " This is a good story! Set in Canada in the present time, it's a well-written mystery with a ghost in it. The main characters are believable and the Canadian history that shapes the family's interests and personalities showed me a fresh perspective as a New Yorker. "

    " Wow! Very interesting weaving together of 2 women's stories, with basic similarities. Doesnt really become a mystery until at least halfway through. Hard to put down "

    " I don't believe I've read Vicki Delaney before, but I really enjoyed this mystery, which combined story lines from the American Revolution, the Afghan war, brain trauma and modern day farming in Canada. A strange assortment, but it worked. "
