House of Shadows offers a mystery spanning three different centuries, intricately connecting the lives of three women with a stately home steeped in history and secrets. In the present day, Holly Ansell is determined to uncover the truth behind her brother’s mysterious disappearance, a quest that leads her to the enigmatic Ashdown House.

As Holly delves deeper into the house’s past, she uncovers the stories of Elizabeth Stuart, a 17th-century royal, and Lavinia Flyte, a famed courtesan in the 1800s, both of whom have a deep and lasting connection to Ashdown. Elizabeth’s tale is one of power, love, and loss as she navigates the treacherous waters of the English court, while Lavinia’s story unveils a world of intrigue, desire, and deception.
