    Moonlight and Ashes

    Despite being trapped in an abusive marriage, Maggie still feels blessed with her eight-year-old twins, Danny and Lizzie, and baby girl, Lucy. But when the Second World War begins it seems that her blessings may have run out. Although the war lets her escape her husband when he's sent to the front, she must also lose the twins, as they're evacuated to North Wales. Lizzie seems to be in the perfect family, while Danny is left with a man who seems to resent his presence. But appearances can be deceptive, and while Maggie struggles to survive the bombings at home, her children face danger of a different kind.

Can she survive the echoes from the past?

    A Mother's Shame

    One rainy, dismal day in 1857, Maria Mundy arrives at the local mental asylum, Hatter's Hall, not as an inmate but as a worker. Here, she is ordered to care for Isabelle Montgomery, the daughter of an influential land-owner. But Isabelle is not insane. She, like many other young women confined within the solitary walls, has been banished here by her family. Hatter's Hall also serves as a place to hide unmarried women in the family way from prying eyes.

    As the women's lives become entwined, they realise the perils of their predicament and plan an escape that could cost their lives. For if they stay at Hatter's Hall, there's every chance they might never leave. There is one person who can help them escape, Isabelle's brother Joshua - who can barely keep his eyes off Maria.
