A book within a book. A town within a town. Are Darkhaven's fictional Montgomerys of The Mount really Whitehaven's Mountjoys of The Mount? Are the characters who played a part in the Montgomery's lives actually drawn from life? As readers in the small seaside town of Whitehaven begin to recognise themselves in the drawing rooms of Darkhaven, curtains begin to twitch and hearts begin to flutter. Who is the author amongst them, what secrets will be exposed and whose story is really being told? As fiction and fact merge, one particular reader determines to lay the family ghosts to rest.
