Jane was fifteen when her life changed forever. In the woods surrounding a Yorkshire country house, she took her eyes off the little girl she was minding and the girl slipped into the trees - never to be seen again. Now an adult, Jane is obsessed with another disappearance: that of a young woman who walked out of a Victorian lunatic asylum one day in 1877. As Jane pieces together moments in history, a portrait of a fascinating group of people starts to unfurl, and forgotten stories emerge - of sibling jealousy, illicit affairs, and tragic death.
