Picture the scene: a stormy evening in the 1870s. A hush descends
at Fainhope Hall as the duchess goes into labour - will she be
delivered of a male baby who will continue the Fainhope line? A boy
is indeed born to the duchess, but a sickly one - and on that
night, in an attic bedroom, an illegitimate, but healthy son is
also born to the governess. Only four people are party to this
secret, and to the duchess's shocking decision, which will shape
all their destinies. FIXING SHADOWS is a novel about the twilight
of the aristocracy, the birth of photography and the unstoppable
rise of London, with an unforgettable cast of scheming aristos,
gossiping servants and cockneys with hearts of gold.
