Constance and Faith

Victoria Routledge

Hannah Marshall never thought she’d return to her west coast hometown of Linton, a fictional town in Cumbria. Her degree and her job in an international auction house were her ticket out of Linton’s faded Georgian splendour, and she escaped gladly. But now, ten years later, Hannah is back, for reasons she won’t discuss, to find little seems to have changed. Her mother Fran is still fighting social injustice, and her bewitching grandmother Dora is still ruling the circle of ladies who dominate the town. Seeing Linton through an adult’s eyes, Hannah begins to make out a complicated web of old grudges and secrets - and a definite air of scandal that surrounds her turbulent family.In addition she faces upheaval in her own sexuality and views of where life is taking her.
