It has been twenty-four years since a young Helena spent a magical holiday in Cyprus, where she fell in love for the first time. When the now crumbling house, 'Pandora', is left to her by her godfather, she returns to spend the summer there with her family. Yet, as soon as Helena arrives at 'Pandora', she knows that its idyllic beauty masks a web of secrets that she has kept from William, her husband, and Alex, her son. At the difficult age of thirteen, Alex is torn between protecting his beloved mother, and growing up. And equally, desperate to learn the truth about his real father... When, by chance, Helena meets her childhood sweetheart, a chain of events is set in motion that threatens to make her past and present collide. Both Helena and Alex know that life will never be the same, once Pandora's secrets have been revealed...

An astounding read!
True Lucinda Riley. I was spellbound from the first paragraph to the last. I can't recall the last story I enjoyed as much as I enjoyed this one.
Ms Riley is a thoroughly gifted storyteller.

Silly plot. Dumb dialogue. Kept waiting for it to get better; it didn't.

A wonderful story from Lucinda Riley, full of mystery and intrigue! Well recommended!

There's an old house in Cyprus over many years, a raft of family connections, a web of family secrets, blended families, endless complications and the diary of a 10 year old boy read through his grown-up eyes. Lucinda Riley is a great story-teller.
