After Clare
by Marjorie Eccles

Will the remains of a soldier be the key that unlocks the secrets of Leysmorton Manor?

1922. Lady Emily Fitzallan has returned to the country house where she spent her childhood for a family wedding. Leysmorton Manor brings back many memories, especially of her elder sister Clare, who vanished one day after going for a walk, never to return. But the disturbing discovery of a soldier’s skeleton at the base of an ancient Yew tree brings the past shockingly into the present.

Could the man’s untimely death have its roots in Clare’s disappearance, which occured almost half a century ago?


“A diabolically twisted plot, authentic historical touches, intriguing characters, and a conclusion even seasoned readers are unlikely to anticipate make this book a fine addition to all mystery collections.”


“Eccles swivels deftly between the past and present, mystery and romance in her latest historical hybrid”
