England, 1970. When their London home goes up in flames. Mrs. Harrington and her the two children relocate to Foxcote Manor to recuperate. When a baby girl is abandoned just beyond their garden gate, this tiniest of secrets brings a much-needed peace, until a visitor detonates the family’s happiness. All too soon a body lies dead in the woods. Forty years later, London-based Sylvie is an expert at looking the other way. She buried her own origin story decades ago, never imagining her teenage daughter would have a shocking reason to dig the past up — and to ask Sylvie to finally face the secrets that lead her back to Foxcote Manor.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“[An] atmospheric mystery . . . Ample foreboding and evocative prose propel things to a gratifying close. Gothic suspense fans will be delighted.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Chase deftly constructs a shadowy puzzle . . . A delicious mystery full of dark labyrinthine curves.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Exploring family dynamics by using alternating timelines, Chase captivates readers, especially fans of Kate Morton, with eloquent prose and sympathetic characters.”

— Booklist

“Chase parcels out her clues slowly, without a hint of showiness. In the end, THE DAUGHTERS OF FOXCOTE MANOR is not really about a murder, or a creepy house, but about families - the ones we’re born into, the ones we make and especially the ones we flee.”

— The New York Times
