Summary
Victoria, Australia, 1886...and 1903. Dark shadows fall across two golden summers, seventeen years apart. When beautiful Matilda Gregory, mistress of Summersby House, dies in mysterious circumstances her 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. Grieving Samuel Hackett seems somehow linked to his fiancee's death but a pact made with Barker, Summersby's scheming butler, proves effective in silencing tongues. The two men return the second Matilda to her inheritance - and set off a series of puzzling events
Summary

Yet it’s not for her servant’s skills that she’s wanted. But before Ida starts her first day, Miss Gregory is found dead. A tale of dark shadows and extraordinary deception
