The Au Pair
Seraphine Mayes and her twin brother Danny are known as the summer-born Summerbournes: the first set of summer twins to be born at Summerbourne House. But on the day of their birth, their mother threw herself to her death, the au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of dark cloaked figures and a stolen baby.
Now twenty-five and mourning the recent death of her father, Seraphine uncovers a family photograph when going through his belongings that raises dangerous questions. It was taken on the day the twins were born, and in the photo, their mother, surrounded by her husband and her young son, is beautifully dressed, smiling serenely, and holding just one baby.
Who is the child and what really happened that day?
What did the au pair flee that day?
Does she hold the key to what really happened?
