Riassunto: With its pretty thatched roof and rustic English setting, Rose Cottage is the picture of tranquility. But when Kate Herrick returns to her childhood home, she discovers a web of intrigue as tangled as the rambling roses in its garden.
It is the summer of 1947. Kate, widowed in the war and settled in London, travels to Rose Cottage to retrieve some family papers hidden there years before by her grandmother. The tiny dwelling seems much as she remembers it, but she discovers the papers are missing, and the village is alive with rumors of mysterious night time prowlers, ghosts, and witchcraft.
Seeking the truth about her humble beginnings, Kate uncovers a story of family bitterness, jealousy, and revenge. But all finally ends well as Kate achieves a reconciliation with her mother who was thought to be dead, learns the identity of her real father, and finds romance where she least expected it.
Sinossi: When Kate Herrick's grandmother asks her to travel down from Scotland to her childhood home in Todhall to retrieve some papers and family mementoes before Rose Cottage is sold, Kate is happy enough to go, but curious as to the changes she may find there. Widowed in the recent war - this is the summer of 1947 - and comfortably settled now in London, she is in some doubt as to how the village will receive her. Rose Cottage - a tiny thatched dwelling with fragrant roses in the garden - is unchanged, and the villagers seem friendly. But there is evidence of a break-in at the cottage, and then her nearest neighbours, three elderly ladies from what the villagers call 'Witches' Corner', come with tales of night-time prowlers in the cottage garden, and even ghosts. In the process of solving the mystery, Kate finds romance.
