Sign up to my bookclub and receive the short story The Tale of Mrs Westaway completely free. Read now on any device!

When Dr Alderney meets an enigmatic young woman at the Bluebird Rest Home, he is intrigued not just by her beauty, but by her air of sadness and reserve. But Hester Westaway has a story to tell, and as the years go by, Dr Alderney comes closer to unravelling her secrets than perhaps anyone else alive.

Spoiler-free and standalone, The Tale of Mrs Westaway explains what came before my latest novel,  The Death of Mrs Westaway.

Are you ready to step into Hester's world?
