For the past five years, Alda Thunberg has been a recluse in her Cornish house, Willow Hill. Within the walls of her refuge, Alda listens to the echoes of her past life, the one she used to share with her husband of forty years, the painter and sculptor Alastair Maynard. She is haunted by the man who had made her his all-powerful muse.
Several hundred miles away, Constance Blackwell – aka The Crimson Lady – is feeling the pressure of her busy London life. She meets a spoilt surf boy and, on a whim, agrees to spend the summer with him.
Constance finds herself in the small Cornish town of Pollbath surrounded by surfers, fields and silence. She feels out of place and is starved of the heady chaos of the city. Soon, she befriends her host, writer Dan Brigstoke, and becomes involved with his latest project: a biography of the painter Alastair Maynard.
Things will never be the same again at Willow Hill: the more Alda delves into her memories and spends time with Constance, the more she questions her own sanity as her obsessive behaviour becomes more erratic and the shadows start moving and whispering to her.
