The Darkest Hour
Barbara ErskineThe Darkest Hour is set during the summer of 1940: the battle for Britain has just begun. Evie has a glittering career as an artist ahead of her but she has eyes for no-one but a dashing young pilot called Tony. She wants his parents to have something to remember him by in case it all goes wrong in the war… Seventy years later, and recently widowed art historian Lucy is trying to put the pieces of her life back together, accidentally stirring up a hornet’s nest of history which has been deliberately obliterated. Lucy finds herself in danger from people past and present who have no intention of letting an untold truth ever surface.
