The Clockmakers Daughter by Kate Morton

In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists
led by the passionate and talented Edward
Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor in
rural Oxfordshire. Their plan: to spend a secluded
summer month in a haze of inspiration and
creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one
woman has been shot dead while another has
disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and
Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins. Over 150 years
later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London,
uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated
items: a sepia photograph of an arresting-looking woman in Victorian
clothing, and an artist’s sketchbook containing the drawing of a twin-
gabled house on the bend of a river. Why does Birchwood Manor
feel so familiar to Elodie? And who is the beautiful woman in the
photograph? Will she ever give up her secrets?
