“Not every daguerreotypist wants to fill you with laudanum and draw you nude………”
In 1856, Hannah Hampshire flees the shame of her late husband’s shocking past to begin a new life with her father in Australia. She encounters a former Hussar, but within hours of finding solace in his arms the man’s past reveals itself to be inextricably linked with the horror of what she once suffered. Thrust into the fever of the Ballarat gold diggings, Hannah is forced to battle old enemies and new dangers, to uncover a truth so terrible that it threatens both her happiness and her life.
