Cruel Habitations

Kate Charles: Cruel Habitations (UK 2000)

From the Publisher:
An unplanned pregnancy. A wife desperate to conceive. A young girl's suicide. A body unidentified.
April 1989, and sisters Alison and Jacquie Barnett take a holiday to Greece neither of them will ever forget. For Jacquie, soon to be married, the holiday represents one last opportunity for fun, and she is determined to make the most of it. Alison, naive and sheltered, disapproves, but it is her meeting and falling in love with Mike that is to define both their lives.

Eleven years later, and Sophie and Chris Lilburn are leaving London for a new life in Westmead. It seems an ideal move - a teaching job for Chris at the cathedral school, the coveted position of Lay Clerk in the cathedral choir, and a rent-free house in Quire Close, a magnificent stretch of stone mediaeval terraced houses. But Chris's delight is tempered by Sophie's longing for a child, by the sinister gossips who exercise control over the community, and by the unsolved murder of a young woman just over a decade earlier.

With the death of her father, Jacquie, now divorced, is hopeful of being the sole beneficiary of his will, Instead he has split everything equally with the daughter no-one has seen for eleven years. And with her father's assets frozen, Jacquie has no choice but to try and trace her sister, a journey that eventually takes her to Westmead, and a stirring of old emotions that will once more put lives in danger.
