Life an charnley was blessed, or so thought the Jardine children, until at a party to celebrate their mother Beatrice’s birthday, a family scandal catapulted them into the headlines. Nearly four decades later, at the end of world War Two, builders working on the house discover letters, photographs and a diary, and Beatrice’s daughters set about unraveling the events of that fateful night. The due lies in a voyage to Egypt undertaken by Beatrice, but the mummified body of a woman is discovered in their old home, a whole new set of questions need to be asked.
