Willig’s new novel is a dual narrative following both modern Julia Conley, a victim of New York’s financial crisis who finds herself out of a job, but inheriting a house – Herne House – from a mysterious aunt in England, and Imogen Grantham living in Herne House in 1849, and trapped in a loveless marriage. 176 more words
