Secret Heiress by Luke Devenish

‘Luke Devenish is a master at the dramatic cliffhanger’ -- Daily Telegraph

'A fabulous "upstairs, downstairs" drama' -- Australian Women's Weekly

A fabled house. A fabulous fortune. Beautiful, identical twins …

Dark shadows fall across the golden summer of 1886.

Naive country girl Ida Garfield longs to escape the farm. When Miss Matilda Gregory, the elegant mistress of Summersby House, offers Ida employment as a housemaid, Ida leaps at the chance. Yet it’s not for her servant’s skills that she’s wanted.

It’s her inquisitiveness...

But before Ida starts her first day, Miss Gregory is found dead. Fearing her one chance of bettering herself lost, Ida goes to the funeral, hoping that someone else from Summersby will still want her.

Someone does. Handsome blond Englishman Mr Samuel Hackett is the late Miss Gregory’s fiancé. He expresses a keen need for a housemaid – and a friend.

But Miss Gregory’s will brings to light an extraordinary deception and a terrible wrong from the past. Summersby has a secret heiress, whose name is also Matilda Gregory...

A strange, ethereal girl with an irrevocably broken memory.

Who is this mysterious heiress, and why is Ida bound forever to the truth?

A tale of dark shadows and extraordinary deception.
