But when her father dies, she finds a mysterious newspaper clipping from Burma, 1911 buried among his belongings - a clipping that says the Hattons were leaving Rangoon after the disappearance of their baby daughter, Elvira. How could her parents have kept this from her for so long? Was her sister really dead? And could there be a chance that Belle might find her? Before she knows it Belle is boarding a ship to Rangoon, alone, with no idea what she will find when she gets there..
Summary
Belle Hatton has embarked upon an exciting new life far from home, a glamorous job as a nightclub singer in 1930s Burma, with a host of sophisticated new friends and admirers. But Belle is haunted by a mystery from the past, a 25 year old newspaper clipping found in her parents' belongings after their death, saying that the Hattons were leaving Rangoon after the disappearance of their baby daughter, Elvira. Belle is desperate to find out what happened to the sister she never knew she had, but when she starts asking questions, she is confronted with unsettling rumours, malicious gossip, and outright threats.
