“A decaying castle hides family secrets, three elderly sisters protect those secrets, and a long lost letter finally delivered 50 years later could revel those secrets. The Distant Hours brings the reader a novel steeped in a gothic atmosphere by an author writing a spellbinding story in a classic style not to be missed.”
— Carol Hicks, Bookshelf At Hooligan Rocks, Truckee, CA


Edie Burchill and her mother have never been close, but when a long-lost letter arrives with the return address of Milderhurst Castle, Kent, Edie begins to suspect that her mother's emotional distance masks an old secret.

Evacuated from London as a 13-year-old girl, Edie's mother was chosen by the mysterious Juniper Blythe and taken to live at Milderhurst Castle with the Blythe family.

Fifty years later, as Edie chases the answers to her mother's riddle, she too is drawn to Milderhurst Castle and the eccentric Blythe sisters. Old ladies now, the three still live together as the twins nurse Juniper, whose abandonment by her fianc in 1941 plunged her into madness.

Inside the decaying castle, Edie begins to unravel her mother's past. But there are other secrets hidden in the stones of Milderhurst Castle, and Edie is about to learn more than she expected. The truth of what happened in the distant hours has been waiting a long time to be uncovered...
