A woman struggles to escape her past in a thriller boasting a “fabulous setting, gripping suspense and a masterful hero” (Milly Johnson). Madeleine Frost is finally free. After enduring her boyfriend’s increasingly controlling and bullying behavior, she has finally had enough. For her safety—and that of her young daughter—she is leaving. But where to?

After discovering the diary of a previous landowner, Maddie and Bandit find themselves immersed in the history of the old house, uncovering its secrets, scandals, and tragedies—and the truth about each other. But when Madeleine’s ex shows up, determined to reclaim what he believes is his, Maddie and Bandit will have to stand together and fight for the love they have only just found . . .

Fallen Skies takes readers to post-World War I England in a suspenseful story about the marriage of a wealthy war hero and an aspiring singer he barely knows. Can a family's mannered traditions and cool emotions erase the horrors of war from a young couple's past? Now back in print from New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory, Fallen Skies takes readers to post-World War I England in a suspenseful story about the marriage of a wealthy war hero and an aspiring singer he barely knows. Lily Valance is determined to forget the horrors of the war by throwing herself into the decadent pleasures of the 1920s and pursuing her career as a music hall singer. When she meets Captain Stephen Winters, a decorated veteran, she's immediately drawn to his wealth and status. And Stephen, burdened by his guilt over surviving the Flanders battlefields where so many soldiers perished, sees the possibility of forgetting his anguish in Lily, but his family does not approve. Lily marries Stephen, only to discover that his family's façade of respectability conceals a terrifying combination of repression, jealousy and violence. When Stephen's terrors merge dangerously close with reality, the truth of what took place in the mud and darkness brings him and all who love him to a terrible reckoning.
