Multi-million-copy bestselling author Kate Morton skyrocketed to critical acclaim with this rich and engrossing debut – a vivid story of suspense and passion, with unforgettable characters.

Summer 1924. On the eve of a glittering Society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again. Winter 1999. Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet’s suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace’s mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge – something history has forgotten but Grace never could. Set as the war-shattered Edwardian summer surrenders to the decadent 20s, The Shifting Fog is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story.

"In honeyed tones Caroline Lee offers up the memories of Grace Bradley, a 98-year-old who recounts a summer in the 1920s that changed the lives of everyone connected to Riverton Manor. When a modern-day filmmaker urges Grace to remember what life was like for her as a lady's maid, she spares no detail recreating life above and below stairs. Lee delicately relates Grace's remembrances of a young poet's alleged suicide and the sisters who witnessed it, the social turbulence brought about by WWI, and the numerous convoluted relationships that define this sprawling saga. Lee's reading is intelligent and sympathetic, managing a clear sense of place and creating a believable distance between period diction and contemporary speech."
