What connects a botanical illustration of a butterfly with a missing baby and an enigma 50 years in the making? A twisty historical mystery from a bestselling Australian author.

1868, Morpeth. Theodora Breckenridge, still in mourning after the loss of her parents and brother at sea, is more interested in working quietly on her art at the family's country estate than she is finding a husband in Sydney society. Theodora seeks to emulate prestigious nature illustrators, the Scott sisters, who lived nearby. With the help of Clarrie, her maid, and her beautiful illustrations, she is poised to make a natural science discovery that will put her name on the map. Then Clarrie's new-born son goes missing and everything changes. 1922, Sydney. When would-be correspondent Verity Binks is sent an invitation to the Sydney Artists Masquerade Ball on the same day she loses her job at The Arrow, she is both baffled and determined to go. At the ball, she lands a juicy commission to write the history of the Treadwell Foundation - an institution that supports disgraced young women and their babies. But as she begins to dig, her investigation quickly leads her to an increasingly dark and complex mystery, a mystery 50 years in the making. Can she solve it? And will anyone believe her if she does?
