A lost girl. A mysterious house in Ireland. An invitation that changes everything.

Twenty years ago, at the end of a long hot Irish summer, three sisters submerge themselves in the cool lake at their home, Swan Hall. As the elder two watch their beautiful younger sister Nuala laughing and splashing, droplets of water clinging to her dark hair, they can hardly hide their envy of her. But later that day, when Nuala tragically drowns, they appear devastated…

Now, as Iris scatters the ashes of her beloved mother onto the golden leaves of Central Park, she feels very alone. But then hope comes in an invitation across the sea to Ireland from her aunt – the woman her mother left behind after a terrible tragedy and never spoke to again.

Swan Hall is more than Iris could ever have dreamed, sitting on the edge of a lake, full of history. But its dark corridors and staircases are caked in dust, and Iris’s unease deepens when she finds a diary belonging to her aunt Nuala, who she has never heard of.

Why did Iris’s mother never mention Nuala? As Iris reads Nuala’s slanting script, she uncovers dark secrets and shocking betrayals from a long hot summer long ago, and begins to wonder: was Nuala’s death really an accident? Can Iris find the truth, and will it change everything she knows about her mother… and herself?

A completely compelling and gripping read about the heartbreak and secrets that tore three sisters apart. Fans of Lucinda Riley and Louise Douglas will love The Last Summer in Ireland.
