House of Shadows by Nicola Cornick. Published by Graydon House

Holly Ansell is looking for her brother after he disappeared from Ashdown Park while researching their family history. In her search, Holly comes across a journal kept by a 19th century courtesan, Lavinia Flite, who was “kept” as Ashdown Hall be her wealthy employer. Through the journal, readers get to know Lavina, a woman who wants more than to be a rich man’s plaything, but who finds herself trapped in a world where women have few choices. Interweaving the stories of Holly, Lavinia and the doomed queen who lived at Ashdown Hall along with the utter destruction of the home in a massive fire, Cornick creates a world of three very different women, all linked by DNA and destiny
