"And to my daughter in France... I bequeath the remainder of my Estate." These words, read from the will of Irish academic Richard Kirwan, stun his grieving children. Across the channel, 24-year-old Solange de Valnay's perfectly ordered world is shattered. Is the man she calls "papa" not her father? Her mother is dead, and Solange resolves to spurn her Irish half-siblings. But the truth won't go away, and the Kirwan children and Solange must overcome their differences and confront the past. An extraordinary tale of doomed passion, of heroism during the second world war, of sacrifices made for love and for honour, reveals itself in ways that resonate to the present. To My Daughter in France... is a sweeping historical drama that moves between occupied Paris, the coast of Connemara and the vineyards of the Languedoc region of southern France in the 1970s.

Every once in a blue moon, a masterful writer dives into gothic waters and emerges with a novel that—like Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, Minette Walters's The Breaker, and Donna Tartt's The Little Friend—simultaneously celebrates and transcends the tradition. Welcome Margaret Leroy to the clan. What's the matter with Sylvie? Such a pretty girl. Four years old; well loved by her young mother, Grace. But there's something . . . "off " about the child. Her deathly fear of water; her night terrors; most of all, her fixation with a photo of an Irish seaside town called Coldharbour. "Sylvie, tell me about your picture. Why's it so special, sweetheart?" My heart is racing, but I try to make my voice quite calm. "That's my seaside, Grace." Very matter-of-fact, as though this should be obvious. "I lived there, Grace. Before." Grace doesn't know what to do with this revelation—she's barely scraping by as it is. A single mother with no family, Grace works full-time at a London flower shop to support herself and Sylvie. Overwhelmed by her inability to help her daughter, she turns to Adam Winters, a dashing psychology professor with some unusual theories about what might be troubling the child. Together, they travel to seemingly idyllic Coldharbour, hoping to understand Sylvie's mysterious connection to the place. Impossible as it may seem, Grace has to accept that her daughter may be remembering a past life. And not only that: the danger bedeviling Sylvie from her past life is still very much a threat to her in this one. Margaret Leroy has been celebrated for writing "like a dream," and her previous novels have been praised for their "hypnotic prose" and "sensuously ethereal, subtly electric drama." Now, in Yes, My Darling Daughter, Leroy offers a novel both haunted and haunting—a wonderfully original, deliciously suspenseful story that enthralls from the first page to the very last.
